Eat your greens soup

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 bunch Kale
1 medium Red or yellow onion, 1/2" dice
6 Cloves of garlic, peeled and sliced
1 small Dried red chilli, seeded & chopped -or-
½ teaspoon Chili flakes, this really isn't too hot, the soup needs it!
1 Bay leaf
1 teaspoon Salt
4 mediums Red potatoes (about 1 lb), scrubbed, 1/2" dice
2 teaspoons Nutritional yeast (opt)
7 cups Water or stock
Pepper
Nonfat yogurt (Horizon brand is great, a lot like sour cream)

For everyone who is fighting off the winter's end germs and illnesses, here's a good NF soup adapted from the Greens cookbook: Cut kale leaves off the stems(you can use the stems to make a stock if you like)wash, and cut into 2" pieces. Cook the onion, garlic, chili, bay leaf and salt in a little water to "saute" them 3-4 min. Add the potatoes, yeast, and 1 cup water. Cover and cook slowly for 5 min. Add kale, cover and steam till wilted. Pour in rest of water, bring to a boil, simmer slowly, covered till potatoes are quite soft, 30-40 minutes. Mash a cup or so of the potatoes against the side or puree in a blender. Add salt and pepper, let sit for an hour or so to develop flavors. Use yogurt for garnish if you want.

Also for calzones...we put pizza/Italian style stuff inside, or black beans/sweet potatoes or squash, or kale/onions/garlic. These fillings would also be good in tortillas or pitas for the guy who needs lunches.
