Excited for this recipe but don’t have cannellini beans or kale on hand? Don’t worry, you can easily adapt this soup to what you have in your pantry or fridge. Spinach leaves are a great replacement for kale. You can even use frozen, if that’s all you have! Try pinto beans or red kidney beans, in place of the cannellini beans. The key is to keep the balance between grains, non-animal proteins and veggies.
