Tomato Kale Soup

Once again...trying to eat healthy and try something new.  I bought kale this week, and then didn’t know what to do with it.  I found this recipe, Tomato-kale-quinoa Soup/, and modified it a bit to use ingredients that I had in the house.  I thought it was very good.

1 28 oz can no salt added crushed tomatoes
1 16 oz can chili flavored kidney beans
3 cups water
3 beef bouillon cubes
1 medium onion chopped
Oregano, rosemary, garlic, black pepper, and thyme (I didn’t measure, just put some of each in)
1/2 of a 5 oz container of baby kale, large stems removed and chopped

(I meant to add the bay leaves, but forgot, and I couldn’t find any quinoa, even though I know there is some in the house.  I didn’t miss either item though)

I put everything in at once, and cooked this in my crockpot on high for about four hours,  I sprinkled some shredded Parmesan on my serving.

If you are following Weight Watchers this is probably one point per serving without the cheese.  (I am assuming that the chili sauce on the beans counts for some points.  I don’t think any of the other ingredients have points with the current smart points system.
