Turkey (Or Chicken) Kale Soup
I know, more Kale. But I simply can not find enough uses of this green goddess. I seriously never tire of it’s glory. Aside from its crazy nutrient content, Kale is a serious mood enhancer. I always feel good after I eat it. So why not eat more. Try it and see for yourself. This soup is an easy crowd pleaser and a great weekend meal to warm up this looming cold nights. Skip the turkey/chicken component if you are looking for a meatless meal. Just up the bean anty.
