Step 1:

Place a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat then add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onion, celery, and carrots. Season with a pinch of salt and mix all ingredients well. Let them cook until the vegetables are softened and starting to just turn brown for about 6 to 9 minutes.

Step 2:

Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to the pot, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more until it becomes very fragrant.

Step 3:

Pour in the vegetable broth and deglaze the pot by stirring up the brown bits on the bottom of the pot. Next, add 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, black pepper to taste, bouquet garni, potatoes, cannellini beans, and artichokes(optional). Stir until well combined.

Step 4:

Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce heat, place the lid, and let it simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. While the soup is simmering, make the gremolata. Place chopped parsley, basil, and lemon zest on your chopping board and finely minced them together, then sprinkle some sea salt on top.

Step 5:

Use an immersion to blend throughout half of the soup. If you don’t have one, you can use a blender. Transfer half of the soup to a stand blender and blend until it becomes thick and smooth. Once done, put the pureed soup back into the pot and stir.

Step 6:

Add the kale to the soup and let it simmer for 3 to 5 minutes or until the kale is tender but still bright green. Taste the soup and adjust the seasonings if needed. Once the soup is done, remove the bouquet garni.

Step 7:

Serve the soup in a bowl and sprinkle a generous amount of the Gremolata, then drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top.
