  • 1 cup sliced ribs of celery (about 2 ribs)
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 15.5-ounce can no-salt-added or low-sodium cannellini beans
  • 2 14.5-ounce cans no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups fat-free, low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 cups sliced carrots (about 5 to 7 medium carrots)

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the carrots, celery, and onion for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Transfer to a 3- to 4½ -quart slow cooker.
  2. Stir in the beans, tomatoes, rosemary, pepper, broth, and kale.
  3. Cook, covered, on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
  4. Carefully take out 2 cups of the soup. Transfer to a food processor or blender. Let cool slightly for about 5 minutes. Process the soup (vent the blender lid) until smooth. (Use caution as the soup and steam are hot and vent the blender lid away from you.)
  5. Return the soup to the slow cooker. Stir until well blended. Stir in the lemon juice.
  6. Ladle the soup into bowls. Sprinkle with the parsley.

Cooking Tip: Don’t have time to cook the vegetables before adding them to the slow cooker? No worries. Just increase the soup's cooking time by a couple hours to be sure that the vegetables are tender.

Keep it Healthy: To get a jumpstart on dinner for those busy weekday nights, prepare the carrots, celery, onion, and garlic ahead of time. Put them in an airtight container and freeze. Just be sure to completely thaw the vegetables before adding them to the slow cooker.

Tip: Chop the carrots and celery in the same size pieces to be sure the vegetables cook evenly.
