For some reason, I thought I had never posted the recipie. I guess I had, but for some reason it doesn't show up in my search engine when I try to search this blog.
Anyway, here it is again... in case you were curious about it.
With the current cold weather we're having, I've been in a total soup mood.
That being said, I thought I'd share with you one of my current favorites - Kale Chili. I found it here. Although, be warned... it's not chili in the traditional sense since it's more brothy. I consider it more of a soup than a chili.
My favorite part about this soup is that you can load it up with cooked kale, which is actually better for you than raw. Not to say raw is bad, since I do eat that too, but eating too much raw kale can actually be bad for you. (What else is new, am I right? Seems like everything is bad for you for some reason or another - shoot! At least eating too many vegetables is a different kind of bad than eating too much fried food.)
Anyway, when I make this, I always use twice as much kale and canned tomatoes than what the recipe calls for, since I figure why not?! And one time, I forgot to buy the chilies, so my husband switched out the tomatoes and chilies for a couple cans of Rotel, and it still tasted great. So, keep that in mind if you find yourself short on ingredients.
Also, my favorite way to serve is with a side of hearty whole grain bread and some hot sauce.
Well, that's it. Check out the recipe below, and let me know if you end up trying it!!
