Kale Soup for the Soul

January 23, 2014

We’ve all heard that kale has many virtues.  I am constantly trying to find ways to get it in my diet whether it be through juicing or cooking. Kale has Vitamin K, C & A as well as calcium and potassium. It has 10x more Vitamin C than spinach! The benefits of eating kale include weight loss, lowers cholesterol reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer.  No brainer, right?  Unfortunately, kale can sometimes be a pain to prepare for cooking.  You have to remove the ribs from the kale and it can be very tough when you cook it.  Once I found the frozen kale in the freezer section I knew it would be easy to create a soup around it!  Frozen vegetables are just as good as fresh –sometimes better- and last much longer.  I always keep a variety of frozen veggies on hand so I can whip up side dishes on a busy weeknight.  Click here for the recipe!
