Yesterday when I went to buy some of my favorite chocolate bars, I was a bit distracted because of the “health food faire,” the grocery store was hosting. Not exactly what I want around me when I’m buying my chocolate! I did however manage to squeeze past the throng of fitness trainers, vitamin reps, and all sorts of “healthy” salespeople. In the end, my mission was a success: I walked out with three giant bars of chocolate and no business cards.
Later, having eaten quite a bit of the delicious chocolate, I decided to whip up my own version of health food. Yes, this is healthy, but flavor comes first!
My spicy kale soup is vegan, packed with nutrients and flavor — and it’s unbelievably hearty and beautiful!
I love having a pot of soup simmering on the stove on a weekend afternoon. It’s comforting (and makes the whole house smell good)!
Please make sure you read my instructions about blending the soup!
1 hour ahead: Chop all the ingredients and begin making the soup.
If you make the soup ahead of time, let it cool to room temp and store it in the refrigerator in an air-tight container. Reheat it on the stove by brining it to a quick boil and then reducing it to a simmer. (You might need to add a bit more stock to thin it a bit.)
