A perfect complement to a cold, wintery evening, this hearty soup brings the warmth and the heat.
Sauté onion in pan over medium heat until translucent. Add the can of diced tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and wine; simmer for a few minutes.
Add 6 cups of water, the fresh tomatoes, red pepper flakes and beans; bring to a rolling boil for about 30 minutes, or until beans start to release starch, thickening the liquid.
Add kale, lower heat and simmer for about 20 minutes more.
For thicker soup, let soup boil longer before adding kale.
Garnish with some freshly grated parmesan or crumbled feta cheese.
