Kale and White Bean Soup


I am always excited by a new recipe that uses kale.  After all, kale is the new beef, right?  Laughing  Kale, in case you don’t know, has a perfect nutrient density score.  Although it can be a bitter, tough leaf, if it’s prepared well, it has a delicious taste.  Massaged kale salad, for example, is divine.  This soup preparation is full of wonderful vegetables, beans for protein, and the pinch of pepper flakes gives it just a tiny kick.

I use homemade broth powder to make the broth for this soup and it lends fabulous flavor.  My husband ate two huge bowls of this soup!
