 Soups are great in the winter- keep you warm and are very filling.  They are also amazing when you need to use up what is left over in your fridge.  As long as you have some vegetables left over and beans- a soup can be made within minutes.

2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium red onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced

1 can (14 oz) white beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups carrots, diced
5 baby red potatoes, diced
4 cups kale
