Coconut Curry and Kale Soup

A yummy coconut broth houses a delicious and healthy array of ingredients like kale, garbanzo beans, roasted tomatoes, and avocado. Actually, I added the avocado on whim at the last minutes and I'm glad I did! It adds a nice creamy bite to the soup. I've had a jalapeno avocado soup before and although it sounds unusual, it's delicious! 

This curry soup is loaded with all sorts of flavors and textures that blend well together in a slightly spicy, slightly sweet broth that is truly delicious. Plus, this is super simple to make. Throw everything in a crockpot or soup pot and let simmer away! 

So Easy. So Good!
Recipe adapted from: Peas and Thank You

Coconut Curry and Kale Soup
1 onion onion, chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons curry
2 1/2 c. vegetable broth
One 14 oz. can light coconut milk 
One 14 oz. can diced organic fire-roasted tomatoes
One 14 oz. can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups organic kale, de-stemmed and torn into pieces
1 small avocado, peeled and diced (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients, except kale in a slow-cooker and set to low.
Cook 4-6 hours. You could also make this in a soup pot on the stove top.

Before serving, add kale and allow to cook for an additional 20-30 minutes or until kale is tender. If adding avocado, stir in the last 5 minutes to heat through. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper and serve.

* Peas and/or corn make a nice addition to this!

I just read an article on how good kale is! I will definitely have to try this recipe!!

Kale is very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, lutein and calcium.

We enjoy it in soup, baked in the oven (kale chips) and tossed in with salad greens.
