As the weather is cooling down, you need food on the stove that will warm your entire family. Stews, roasts and soups are some of the most beautiful foods to look forward to during this season. And with the most gorgeous bunches of dark green kale being in-season at the moment, we feel you should put together a big bowl of minestrone for your loved ones, this week.
Kale is a nutritional powerhouse that will not add a delicious rich flavour and colour to your soup, but also make your bones strong. Part of the cabbage family, this leafy green is rich in potassium, Vitamin A, K and has more calcium than a glass of full-cream milk.
This soup also reheats and freezes very well, and also makes a delicious, warming lunch when taken to school or work in a thermos. Make a big batch on a Sunday afternoon and you’ll be set for at least four meals.
