Creamy Kale and Potato Soup … a Happy Accident
Do you ever make something, and it doesn’t turn out quite how you imagined? This Creamy Kale and Potato soup was one of those recipes for me.
I had originally set out to make a creamy soup with equal proportions of kale, potatoes, and white beans. As I wrapped up the recipe though, I realized there were a LOT of potatoes … oops!
Truthfully, I wasn’t upset at all … ha ha.
I LOVE potatoes in any size, shape, or form. And really, is there anything more comforting on cold day than a steaming bowl of potato soup? I don’t think so!
My vegetable soup recipe turned into a potato soup recipe just like that, and I’m not complaining.
There’s still has plenty of veggies in this potato, white bean, and kale soup though, which makes me feel better about the touch of cream I added at the end!
This Creamy Kale and Potato Soup is simple to make, creamy, rich, and delicious. Make a bowl tonight!
