Seven soups every Saturday: kale soup recipes

3035752833_ca0c0f7bed

In January I pledged to work more kale into my cooking this year. I thought it would be like taking medicine, or eating cauliflower (which, I'm sorry to admit, I truly detest), but oh, how wrong I was. Kale, often paired with sausage in traditional Portuguese and Italian soups, also compliments squash, beans, lentils and potatoes. High in vitamins A and C, antioxidants, fiber and calcium, kale's slightly bitter taste mellows in soup, and that's one of my favorite ways to get more kale into my diet.

Seven kale soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Roasted potato leek soup with kale, from Not Eating Out in New York

Hearty kale, white bean and tomato soup, from Aggie's Kitchen

Curried red lentil, chickpea, and red kale soup, from Food Blogga

Tuscan bean soup with shrimp, from The Pioneer Woman Cooks

Coconut chickpea and kale soup, from Kahakai Kitchen

Italian meatball and kale soup, from Once A Chef Always A Chef

Farro, kale and butternut squash soup, from TasteFood
