Kale and sweet potato soup

A wonderful healthy kale and sweet potato soup to serve on a chilly evening.

Kale and sweet potato soup

I got this soup idea from a soup they’re selling at Whole Foods. Not only is it so easy a monkey could make it, it’s also packed with vitamins and makes an excellent lunch! Kale can be difficult to incorporate into meals but should be used on a regular basis for its strong health benefits. This soup is the solution. Serve it with a nice gruyere jalapeno grilled cheese or a quiche.
