Kale Soup with Beef
This wonderful soup will warm you up on a cold winter night, it is my family recipe for Kale Soup. There are many type of kale soup, from vegan, to potato, to vegetable, to Portuguese, and still others with beans, potatoes and sausage. My Kale soup is filled with dark green kale, onions, garlic and beef. With the super power of kale, and only two tablespoons of olive oil in this recipe, not only is it good for you, its good for your waistline. Its not a quick soup to make, but one you will eating for days.
It can be a appetizer for dinner, or just add some crusty bread and a glass of wine, and it is a meal in itself.
