This simple, delicious, freezer-friendly soup recipe was inspired by the fresh kale, carrots, and parsley I harvested a few weeks ago, and it is JAM-PACKED with flavor! Both my kids and husband couldn’t get enough, and I know this is one I will be making all the time.

As an aside, I can’t even tell you how excited I am, after four years of unsuccessful attempts at gardening, to actually be growing things! (You can follow our garden progress on Instagram or by following hashtag #SoukupGarden)

    It looks so simple to make. Cooked is the only way I like Kale. Raw kale just makes me sad.

    This looks so easy, and delicious! I am adding this on to my Pinterest board for recipes I have to try (let’s just say a lot of them are yours). I love slow cooker meals and I love soups, so this is awesome. I love to take left over rice, or even mashed potatoes, and ladle soup on top for an even heartier meal (and a way to change-up left overs). Plus, it’s a great way to sneak in some extra veggies, with the kale. Kale is one of my favorites, I was luck enough to find a whole bunch on sale when it was in season this fall, and it was only $1.49 for the whole bunch. If you find you have any left over, take some time to make kale chips, they are amazing and even my 4 year old loves my “green chips”.
