Kale Soup & Kale Chips

Come Kale Away Soup

This soup has lots of protein from the quinoa, chia and the chickpeas. The kale is a nutrient-packed powerhouse of a green that offers you anti-oxidants, vitamin A, and C, and provides plenty of fiber.  Not only a low-fat and low-calorie vegetable, kale is recognized as one of the best to eat to help defend against cancer.  If you want to speed up the preparation, use a food processor slicing blades to slice up the carrots, celery and potato – so easy!

Kale Soup Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
