Prep and Cook Time: 40 minutes
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 medium carrot, diced into ¼-inch cubes (about 1 cup)
1 cup diced celery
2 red potatoes, diced into ½-inch cubes
3 cups kale, rinsed, stems removed and chopped very fine
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried sage
salt and pepper to taste
Chop garlic and onions and let sit for 5 minutes to bring out their hidden health benefits. Heat 1 Tbsp. broth in a medium soup pot. Sauté onion in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes stirring frequently. Add garlic and continue to sauté for another minute. Add broth, carrots, and celery and bring to a boil on high heat. Once it comes to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Add potatoes and kale and cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 more minutes.
Add rest of ingredients and cook another 5 minutes. If you want to simmer for a longer time for extra flavor and richness, you may need to add a little more broth.
