Kale Noodle Soup
Seasons change, but the classics don’t. As fall hits the country—and finally arrives here in Arizona!— everyone is clamoring for their favorites. But next time you’ve got a hankering for some chicken-noodle, give this one a shot. It’s got everything you love about that savory staple with the added benefits of our favorite leafy-green.
Making soup from scratch is incredibly easy and allows you to know exactly what is going into your bowl. So many of those store bought soups—canned and seemingly “fresh”— are loaded with sodium (Hi, blood pressure! Get it?), preservatives, and veggies of mysterious freshness. This way, you get to enjoy those savory flavors with only a bit more effort. Give it a try!
