"Green" soup

Submitted by: LMDIENER

Introduction

My husband really wanted to create a "green" soup using some of the delicious kale we had in the garden. I must say that this soup was absolutely delicious. It definitely tastes green but it's also really delicious and filling. My husband really wanted to create a "green" soup using some of the delicious kale we had in the garden.
