Super Energy Kale Soup

This soup is not your ordinary potato kale soup. It is lighter tasting because it is not blended, and it has more vegetables for extra flavor and nutrition. It is a very easy soup to prepare, and takes no time at all to put together. For a richer taste, if you have time, let simmer for an extra 20 minutes or so.

Super Energy Kale Soup Prep and Cook Time: 35 minutes

1 medium sized onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
5 cups vegetable stock
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
2 red potatoes, diced in ˝ inch cubes
3 cups kale, rinsed, stems removed, and chopped fine
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried sage
salt and pepper to taste

Add stock, 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 another 5 minutes. Add potatoes and kale and cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 more minutes. Add rest of ingredients and cook another 5 minutes. If you simmer for a longer time for extra flavor and richness, add a little more vegetable stock.
