Kale has been getting a bum rap on social media lately. But it’s a nutrient-packed dark leafy green food which can add lots of benefits to your diet, so it might be a good idea to learn 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.
