Ham Potato Kale Soup - low cal and low fat

Submitted by: PBIGELOW6

Introduction

Absolutely delicious.

I never used to like kale until I used it in soup.

Low calorie (231 cals/1 c. svg), low fat (5.4 g) and off the charts in Vit A (178% MDR).

BUT it is high in sodium (1253 mg), so do not use in restricted sodium diets. One way you can decrease this is to add several cups of water (and 1/2 c. milk to keep creaminess) and adjust seasonings. (Recalculate nutrition.)

VARIATIONS: I couldn't think of anything that could make this any better. It's outstandingly delicious as is!
