Add the onions, carrots, celery, zucchini, and squash. Saute for 4 minutes. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme and rosemary. Cook 30 seconds. Stir in the broth, beans, and tomatoes. Bring the contents to a boil, then turn the heat down to low and add the chopped kale. Cover the pot and simmer for 15 minutes. Use an immersion blender* to partially puree the soup, leaving some chunks of beans vegetables for texture. Add the salt, pepper, sugar, and vinegar. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve with a side of crusty bread. Notes: Non-vegan eaters may substitute chicken broth for vegetable broth and can top soup with Parmesan or Dubliner cheese. *Alternatively, transfer small amounts to a counter top blender and puree as desired.
