Rachael Ray has a recipe for basically a bean soup to which she added kale. I think it had some Polish sausage or such also for a main dish meal. Looked really good.

InTheKitchen - I use kale in soup & pasta recipes all the time, but I'm confused by your comment/request for recipes for kale that is "drying up". I use fresh (from the supermarket or my garden) kale - not old "drying up" stuff.

Do you mean kale that's been sitting in your fridge for too long, kale that didn't get enough water in your garden, or. . . ?

Has been in fridge too long and want to use before have to throw it out. Just got it Sunday and seems to be drying out fast. I always thought to fix like spinach and wanted something new that the individual liked. Seems all healthy stuff gets old fast. Trying to keep up w/peaches, cherries, watermelon before too dry. Wouldn't it be great to have some kind of soup w/fruit? Maybe not. Have thrown all together for salad of fruit. Just curious. Like to try something new and always ask here. Thanks, BreezyCooking for asking.

There are many fruit-based soups. I have several in my cookbook. They can be had both hot and cold. Do a quick Google-search and you will find a host of recipes. Then, just make them and enjoy.

Well, age of Kale notwithstanding - lol - here's my favorite soup using kale:


PORTUGUESE KALE & TURKEY SAUSAGE SOUP

One medium onion, peeled & chopped
One pound of kale, de-ribbed & roughly sliced/chopped
1-1/2 quarts or so of chicken stock (if not homemade, I usually use one carton + one can of Swanson's)
Two medium potatoes, peeled & diced -OR- two cans of cannelini/white kidney beans, rinsed **
One package (usually 12 to 16 ounces) turkey kielbasa sausage, sliced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

In a large soup pot add enough olive oil to coat the bottom & saute onion until starting to soften, but not brown. Add sliced sausage & continue sauteeing until everything is just starting to brown a little. Add chicken stock & diced potatoes (if using) & simmer until potatoes are tender - about 15 minutes or so. Add kale & continue cooking until kale is tender. (** if using beans instead of potatoes, add chicken stock & bring to a simmer. Add kale & cook until tender; then add beans & stir gently until beans are just heated thru.) Add salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste & serve.

Thanks

Thanks BreezyCooking and Goodweed. I have noted and will have to try tomorrow. Had to save something today as it was getting bad. Kale must wait till tomorrow. I will try.

Also check w/Google but I always feel partial to DC recipes. thanks

I often chiffonade kale or spinach in many of my soups. It adds many vitamins and adds a little more interest to the soup.

In fact one of my chef friends introduced me to adding romaine lettuce to chicken or shrimp soups...I love it.
