Super Energy Kale Soup

November 1, 2018


Let chopped onion and garlic sit for 5 minutes to bring out their health benefits. Heat 1 tablespoon broth in a medium soup pot. Sauté onion in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic and continue to sauté for another minute. Add remaining broth, carrots and 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 5 minutes. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Add kale and remaining ingredients and cook for 5 minutes.

A tip from Debbie: “If you want to simmer for a longer time for extra flavor and richness, you may need to add a little more broth.”
