Collard Green Soup

Submitted by: RONREAMAN

Introduction

A nice hearty soup, the flavors of the tahini and peanut butter bring out the sweetness of the collards while the lemon, red pepper and ginger give it some zing. Optionally the chicken can be left out to make it vegetarian. The recipe is very versatile, feel free to play with it.
