One of the most nutritious and useful foods to eat this month is kale. It’s more flavourful and abundant in the colder months, and makes a great substitute for cabbage or spinach. This recipe is packed with vitamins, minerals and protein, while the bacon ensures it’s full of flavour too.
This broth is very easy to make and takes only 30 minutes to make. You can also prepare it in the slow cooker, perfect for when you come home after a busy day. Add some crusty bread and it makes a complete meal-in-a-bowl.
It tastes even better the next day as the flavours and textures mingle. Make plenty – this soup is also great for freezing.
While these vegetables are a good guideline, you can use whatever you have in the fridge. Just don’t forget to include the kale!
Now this sounds like my sort of winter-warming dish. I will use chickpeas though as I think they would make this even nicer.
I have been struggling to see the appeal of kale - tried a smoothie once, never again! But this looks far more palatable and just the job for a cold night. I will definitely give this a go.
