Kale and Roasted Sweet Potato Soup with Chicken Sausage

Admin July 26, 2011 1

Kale is everywhere these days – pasta with kale, kale chips, and yes, kale smoothies. Kale is a superfood and it seems like everyone is starting to take notice. It is one of the healthiest vegetables on the planet. Why is it a superstar? According to WebMD:

“One cup of kale contains 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15% of the daily requirement of calcium and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 40% of magnesium, 180% of vitamin A, 200% of vitamin C, and 1,020% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus. Kale is also rich in the eye-health promoting lutein and zeaxanthin compounds.”

This soup is delicious, light, and incredibly healthy! Aside from roasting the sweet potatoes ahead of time, this soup doesn’t take long to make and pairs well with a side of crusty garlic bread!
