Superman’s Soup

 

It was one of those nights – cold, rainy and windy.  I wanted to cook something healthy to combat the post-Valentine’s Day chocolate and sugar fatigue.  I looked into the fridge and found some basics:  chicken, kale, sweet potatoes, carrots and mushrooms.

I told the kids I was going to be making “Superman’s Soup.”  Nate wanted to know why I gave it such a silly name.  I told him that it was the kind of soup that gave Superman the energy he needed in order to fly.  Nate was doubtful then, that he would like such a healthy concoction.  Thankfully, he was wrong!  This was my first time cooking with kale, and we were all surprised at how yummy it is.  It added a slightly nutty flavor to the soup.  Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

* Boneless, skinless chicken breasts

* 1 cup of carrots, chopped and diced

* 1 cup of mushrooms, rinsed and washed

* 1 cup of chopped onions

* 2 cups of kale, washed and ripped into smaller pieces away from the tough stems

* 2 cups of sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

* 10 cups of chicken stock

* salt, pepper, minced garlic

 

Directions:

Pre-cook the boneless chicken breasts until they are tender.  Let them cool slightly and slice them, or tear them apart for a more “shredded” look for the chicken.

In your soup pot, add the chicken stock, and heat on low.  Add the cooked chicken breasts, carrots, mushrooms, onions, sweet potatoes and kale.  Let the soup simmer until the potatoes and carrots are tender.  Use the salt, pepper and garlic to season to your own taste.

Enjoy!  I hope your family like Superman’s Soup as much as mine did…

    The only time I have ever used kale is in homemade juices, so I would also be wishing and hoping that me cooking with it came out well, and I’m glad that it did.

    I'm so impressed! I'm never a huge fan of soups, but this looks good! I also imagine that it would be interest to add a tomato flavoring to the recipe (can you tell I don't cook much?) I want to try this, it looks great!

  16. This so looks so good, easy and healthy! I think my kids might really like it.

  17. Courtney Lewis says:

    Yum- do you think it would still be good if you took out the chicken and used veggie stock- I REALLY need to get more veggies in the boys.
