    Squash and Kale Soup

    Tue Jan 29, 2013 6:57 pm Groupie
    This I actually made a couple of weeks ago, but had some for lunch today. It was a great way to use up my kale, and even though I did use bacon, this could easily be made vegetarian.

    Garlic, bacon, onions, leeks, potatoes, celery, frozen butternut or winter squash, vegetable broth, bay, basil, oregano, nutmeg, white wine, a splash of cream, and a whole bunch of kale. Also, lots of salt and pepper.

    Simple and healthy. But bacon could be subbed with a vegetarian bacon which would be equally as good.

    It freezes well, creamy, and seriously only 1/3 cup for 8 cups of soup, It is a fantastic soup. Serve with cheesy crostini for a easy dinner or sandwiches if you want. Add a salad; and you have an easy inexpensive dinner.

    Nothing else is as healthy as such a soup!! It looks wonderful and creamy, and I love the photos with the spoons -- shows exactly how thick and creamy it is. Lovely! icon_biggrin.gif

    looks lovely, very comforting for winter....

    and how about sub'ing a smoked cheese for the bacon ?

    I wouldn't mind having a bowl of that soup with
    some crusty bread. icon_smile.gif

    It is really good and healthy too. It does have a little bacon and cream; but so little compared to the entire pot it makes. 6-8 bowls.

    You could afford to have a big slice of cheesy bread and not feel guilty. The last time I made a similar version, I served toasted baguettes with goat cheese and it was delicious.

    I know you are a soup fan as well. This whole pot probably cost me 5 dollars if that. Soup is such a nice, inexpensive, and easy meal. I wish there were more soup fans out there. Me ... anytime of the year is a perfect time for soup.
