Sweet potatoes and kale are two super foods that combine in today's special soup for a low fat, nutrient dense, healing meal.
Sweet potatoes and yams are strengthening for the kidneys and qi (vital life force). They are rich in Vitamin A, and if used in moderation, help detoxify the body.
Kale is also rich in Vitamin A, with the additional benefit of chlorophyll, calcium and iron. It is very healing for the lungs and for stomach irritations such as ulcers, as well as cleansing for the digestion and liver.
The Sweet Potato and Kale Soup is a creamy, pureed base of sweet potato and vegetables. Kale is added in at the last ten minutes of cooking.
This soup can be great for kids, as it's an easy way to get more than one serving of veggies into their bodies. It's also a great comfort food. For more kale and sweet potato recipes, see the Soup and Vegetable recipe sections.
