Caldo Verde

easy caldo verde
For me Kale is a hard veggie to like, I've been known to eat it in two forms and only two forms, Smoothie/Juice or made into chips, there's just something about that bitter flavor that doesn't get me excited. However, I'm always willing to try new ways to give it a shot, only because, you know,  it's so good for me. So when I saw a recipe card in the produce department of my grocery store I was intrigued by the possibility of a new dish. It took me a few months to actually get around to taking a stab at the overly simple recipe, but seeing that I've made it twice this week I kind of wish I'd done it sooner...

And while soup isn't a must have for summer I found it was actually extremely refreshing with a nice creamy texture. As for the Kale it's like butter, it's rich and full flavor, so it looks like a I found my new favorite...
