I've been talking about this soup for quite some time now. And many of you have inquired about it.
So, here it is. My latest creation. A soup that can be enjoyed anytime of the day, anytime of the year.
It all started with a simple grocery shoppin' trip to Zabars here in Manhattan where I came across the most beautiful Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes. I picked 'em up, tossed 'em into my basket and scurried home with a soup recipe brewing in my mind.
Full of heart healthy fiber, vitamins n' minerals...this baby is sure to have your taste buds smilin' in no time.
Gluten-Free Kale and Almond Sweet Potato Soup

Puncture holes in sweet potatoes using a fork. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet; bake for 20 minutes or until very tender.
Meanwhile, steam kale and Brussels Sprouts on the stove top in a medium sized pot, covered. Drain; set aside to cool.
