I've been a kale lover since I was a kid. My grandma, and mom, make kale soup from our Portuguese heritage. This is what we do - or at least my own version which is much healthier than theirs.
(I never measure anything for this soup.)
Boil some split peas for about 20-30 minutes.
Add an onion (chopped) and clove of garlic.
Add a potato or two, diced.
Chop and add a head of cabbage.
Add a shredded bunch of kale.
Pour in some olive oil.
Add a can of kidney beans (I love them so usually add two).
Add a pinch of sugar.
Let it simmer until the cabbage is cooked and then serve.
It's tradition in our family to have this soup with a roll and we dunk it in the soup.
