Today's soup uses the 'queen of greens' which is what Kale is considered to be because of its exceptional nutrient richness, health benefits, delicious flavour and it's availability in all grocery stores. This along with broccoli - also highly nutritious - makes today's soup a wonderful pick-me-up after the cold dark days of the past few weeks and its colour will have us thinking of Spring.
And I'm crowning this delicious soup with a brie topped with seeds and almonds crouton.
