Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Soup with Kale

Serves 4


  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 red onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ⅓ cup white wine (for deglazing) 
  • 4 cups assorted mushrooms (we used maitake and shiitake), sliced 
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme, stemmed
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 cups curly kale, stemmed and pulled apart into small pieces


  1. In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook on low, stirring occasionally, until soft and translucent (about 20 minutes).
    Add garlic and sauté until aromatic (about 1 minute). Pour in wine and scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon or spatula to get all the flavorful brown bits into the soup.
  2. Add mushrooms, rosemary, thyme, and broth.
  3. Simmer covered for 20 to 30 minutes or until mushrooms are soft.
  4. Uncover, season with salt to taste, and toss in kale. Cook uncovered until wilted (3 to 5 minutes).
