Kale superfood soup

One easy way to incorporate superfoods into your diet is with a quick and easy soup. Try this hearty, power-packed soup after a long day of work.

Hearty, yet simple

Step 1:

To get started, heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan. You will be adding cooked potatoes later in the soup recipe, so start cooking those now.

Step 2:

When the oil is hot, add in one cup of diced Spanish chorizo. You can find Spanish chorizo in the gourmet section of your grocery store. This ingredient adds a smoky flavor to the soup.

Step 3:

Next, add one cup each of diced onions, celery and carrots. Season with salt, pepper and a tablespoon of chopped, fresh garlic. If you like a garlicky flavor, you can add a little extra in this step.

Step 4:

Stir in one cup of the diced, cooked potatoes and one cup of diced kale. Before adding the kale, you may need to remove the center ribs. Simply cut them out and dice the remaining leafy portion.

Step 5:

Add four cups chicken stock. Cook for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.

Step 6:

To round out the superfood dinner, serve this hearty soup with a mixed greens salad.

Hi Jennifer, Swiss chard or even spinach could serve as a substitute for kale.

What if you can't find kale? What can you substitute?

Looks yummy and healthy, thanks! I used to make cabbage soup all the time for my husband and I, and it looks very similar to this. It's packed with vitamins and nutrients, low in calories, and speeds up your metabolism. Plus, it lasts for a long time and gets better when it sits in the fridge!
