HEART-WARMING KALE SOUP

After all the delicious naughty chocolate desserts I’ve posted, back to some healthy heart-warming soup.

The weather has turned from a lovely 25ºC during the Easter holidays, to gail force winds and a merely 16ºC, which was a great day to use up all the kale I had still left, and make it into a fabulous soup.

This is soup and main meal in one if you want to.
