Feeling the cold? Try our healthy soup recipe! Stay warm with this tasty, spicy, Portuguese-inspired kale soup. We first posted this one back in 2014 and it got rave reviews, so we’ve brought it back for consecration. And, our recipe’s vegan! Read on.
Kale has been getting a bum rap on social media lately. But because it’s a nutrient-packed dark leafy green food that can add lots of benefits to our diet, we thought it might be fun to try some creative ways of preparing it.
According to healthline.com, kale is –
- among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.
- loaded with powerful antioxidants.
- an excellent source of vitamin c.
- said to help lower cholesterol, which may reduce the risk of heart disease.
So we took a popular, easy, traditional Portugese soup called “Caldo Verde” [ˈkaɫdu ˈveɾðɨ; it literally means “green broth”] and adapted it for fasting, for Consecration season, or just for healthier eating. Try our simple vegan version below.
