  1. I love fall. I’m cooking SO much soup.

  2. This looks interesting! Soup is one of my favorite things to eat! I have never eaten kale. What does it taste like? Is it similar to spinach?

  3. This soup is hearty and full of flavor. As for the kale standing out.. it didn’t. Not to my taste buds anyway. But I can tell ya that it has a kick at the end that comes from the red pepper… It warms you up nicely 🙂 and is one of my husband’s favor soup recipes.

  4. I need to make this!! I have kale in the fridge right now! Thanks Renee!
