Make the ciabatta croutons
Heat the oven to 400°F.
- Tear the ciabatta into 1-inch pieces.
On a sheet pan, drizzle the ciabatta with 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Spread the ciabatta in an even layer and toast in the oven until crisp and browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Meanwhile, start the soup.
Prep the potatoes and garlic; start the soup
- Scrub or peel the potatoes; cut the potatoes into ½-inch pieces.
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mirepoix, potatoes, and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 6 to 8 minutes.
Add the kale, tomatoes, vegetable broth, and 2 cups [3 cups] water and season with salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are just tender and the soup thickens, 5 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the soup
- Rinse the white beans.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
To the pot with the soup, add the beans and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the parsley, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer the soup to individual bowls and top with the ciabatta croutons. Garnish with the Parmesan, and serve.
- Tear the ciabatta.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Measure the garlic.
- Rinse the beans.
- Garnish with the Parmesan.
