Soup: The Best Comfort Food
Soup is one of my favorite go-tos for cold weather, rainy days, or even when I’m feeling stressed out. They are almost always easy to make and bring me comfort when I need it most. This recipe is no exception. It’s healthy and hearty ingredients make for a delicious bowl of warm goodness. It’s also super easy to make, so very little prep is required, which is even better for days when you need it the most!
Packed with Healthy Ingredients
This hearty soup has six grams of filling fiber, ten grams of protein, and only 128 calories per serving. The addition of one of our favorite superfoods, kale, means that each serving contains over 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamins A and C. Try it with your favorite whole grain cracker for dunking, to get some extra fiber. You can even swap out the chicken broth for veggie broth to make this soup vegetarian and vegan-friendly.
