Default Super Energy Kale Soup

How can I not love a soup called Super Energy Kale soup? This comes from the Worlds Healthiest Foods website (whfoods.org).

Super Energy Kale Soup
Prep and Cook Time: Prep and cooking time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 medium carrot diced about ¼ inch cubes (about 1 cup)
1 cup diced celery
2 red potatoes, diced in ½ inch cubes
3 cups kale, rinsed, stems removed, and chopped very fine
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried sage
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Heat 1 TBS broth in a medium soup pot. Healthy Sauté onion in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring frequently. Add garlic and continue to sauté for another minute. Add broth, carrots celery, and bring to a boil on high heat.

Once it comes to a boil reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Add potatoes and kale and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 more minutes.

Add rest of ingredients and cook another 5 minutes. If you simmer for a longer time for extra flavor and richness, add a little more broth.

Serves 4

It sounds like a good way to include a leafy green-kale-in a recipe. How does it taste?

Made without animal broth, with a little extra virgin coconut oil, a pinch of pepper (red and black) a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast...YUM!!!!

Oh, and I don't remove the kale stems, ever.
