Instructions

The Soup:

  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan set over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the cumin, paprika, salt and pepper, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves into a small bowl, add ½ cup of the broth and smash with the back of a fork.
  • Stir the roasted garlic and broth mixture, along with the red wine vinegar, into the onions.
  • Add the remaining 3 ½ cups of broth, beans, Swiss card and kale to the saucepan. Bring the a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the greens are tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the spinach and cook for 1 minute.
  • Let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes. Use a handheld immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Alternatively, puree the soup in a blender in batches, taking care to release the steam periodically and holding down the top while the blender is running.
  • Stir in the nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with the spiced pepitas sprinkled on top.

The Pepitas:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, toss together the pepitas, olive oil, paprika, cumin and salt. Spread the coated pepitas on a baking sheet.
  • Bake until the pepitas are golden brown, about 5 minutes, stirring once. Watch carefully so the pepitas do not burn.
