Kale and Potato Soup
In my Door to Door Organics box, I received a bunch of kale. That sent me wildly searching on recipezaar.com to find that perfect recipe. You know what, I think I did! Matt even liked it and gave it a 7 or 8. He was between the two. He said while he wasn't super fond of the kale texture, he loved the flavor of the soup. Yeah! So, yet another score for Door to Door Oragnics in helping me get out of my box and try something new.
Kale and Potato Soup by Amanda Kaake
I must admit I wasn't sure if I'd like this or not. I had gotten some kale in a box from door to door organics and needed to use it up. To my surprise, we loved this soup! Even Matt gave it a 7-8 on flavor. He didn't like the kale texture as much but still ate it all and cleaned up the broth in his bowl.
3 large or 4-5 medium potatoes peeled and diced
1 large diced onion
2-3 crushed garlic cloves
4 cups chicken broth
Approximately 4 cups finely chopped kale
pinch of cayenne pepper
1. Drizzle a bit of olive oil in a warm pan and throw in onions. Cook till translucent.
2. Add in garlic, potatoes, cayenne pepper and broth. Bring to boil and turn down to a simmer for 20 mintes or till potatoes are done.
3. Next add in kale and simmer another 15 minutes or so till kale is done .
4. Serve and enjoy!
