Awesome recipe! Easy, healthy, cheap. I've been meaning to eat more kale, and now that I've made this recipe once, I know eating kale more often won't be a problem at all. I was lucky enough to have a bit of home made chicken stock in which I cooked the potatoes.

I used 2 cups of chicken broth for extra flavor. What a delicious soup!
