Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I added carrots and celery (1 cup each) otherwise followed the recipe, but it didn't have much flavor. Also, I think spinach would work better than kale.

Guilt-free and easy to make. I left the salt out.

I also used Pomi salt-free tomatoes in a BPA free carton, and low Pacific Foods low-sodium vegetable broth.

So far, I am surprised there are no captions on your videos??????????????????????????

This soup is so good. I love that the kale keeps some texture and doesn't get too soft like spinach does. Tasty, too!

This was so easy to make and the whole family loved it - even the kiddos. Ate the leftovers for lunch the next day and it heated up nicely too.
