    1 tablespoon olive oil
    8 garlic cloves, minced

    4 cups IC friendly chicken broth or IC friendly vegetable broth, divided
    2 (15 ounce) cans beans of your choice and tolerance(eg. cannellini/White Kidney beans, navy beans undrained split

    In a large pot, heat olive oil.
    Add garlic and onion; saute until soft and the onion is transparent.
    Wash the kale, leaving small droplets of water. Saute, stirring, until wilted and a lovely emerald green, about 15 minutes.
    Add 3 cups of the broth, reserving 1 cup, 2 cups of the beans, reserving 1 cup, herbs, salt and pepper.
    Simmer until carrots are tender(aprox 15mins)
    In a blender or food processor, mix the reserved beans and broth until smooth.
    Stir into the soup to thicken it nicely.

    Simmer 15 more minutes.
