Hearty Tomato Soup with Beans & Greens


Garlicky kale and creamy white beans elevate simple canned tomato soup into a 10-minute lunch or dinner that really satisfies. Use a soup with tomato pieces for a heartier texture. Look for a brand that's low- or reduced-sodium, with no more than 450 mg sodium per serving.



  • 2 (14 ounce) cans low-sodium hearty-style tomato soup

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 cups chopped kale

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • teaspoon crushed red pepper (Optional)

  • 1 (14 ounce) can no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat soup in a medium saucepan according to package directions; simmer over low heat as you prepare kale.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add kale and cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in garlic and crushed red pepper (if using) and cook for 30 seconds. Stir the greens and beans into the soup and simmer until the beans are heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Divide the soup among 4 bowls. Serve topped with Parmesan.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
