Never in a million years would I have made this soup except for the fact that a huge bag of kale arrived in my CSA box. I’ve cooked kale before, but I have never had results like this. I just cannot gush enough about this soup! I am just loving the collection of recipes in Gourmet Quick Kitchen. I have not been disappointed in any of the recipes so far! And this is one of the best soups ever!
Start to finish it takes 45 minutes and that includes removing the ribs from a pound of kale. But, it has one small catch. Don’t plan to serve it until the next day. The flavors need 24 hours to come together. This broth has a surprising amount of depth to it especially considering the small number of ingredients. It’s close to a French onion without the beef broth. In fact, water is the only liquid.
