  • In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and celery; cook until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add fennel and carrot; cook until tender, about 5 minutes more. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add kale; cook, stirring, until wilted, about 1 minute. Add crushed red pepper and black pepper; cook 30 seconds. Add wine; cook until almost evaporated. Add beans, broth and bay leaves.
