Coconut Curry Kale Soup
w/ Chicken
It's soup time here. I love foods with lots of flavor, and this one has it.  I enjoyed this for dinner, and it was very filling. I added 2x the amt. of kale. But like all recipes---just tweak them to your liking. The broth is good-so add what you like. If you don't kale, add another green, but don't cook it as long. Here's the recipe if you're interested--serves about 6 healthy appetites. According to my fitness pal/per serving: 16 carbs/4 sugars/253 Calories. So BFC S/4,C/1.
In a large pot add, and bring to gentle boil:
1 lg container of vegetable or chicken stock (4 cups)
1 13 oz can unsweetened coconut milk
2 T red curry paste (or dry curry powder)
2 T lime zest--save lime for garnish/serving (or dried lemongrass if you have it)
2 pkg. of Stevia
2 T of fresh grated ginger
Add and cook for about 10 minutes
1/2 lb chopped kale (I added 1 lb)
Then add and cook until chicken is done...10 mins or so.
1 thinly sliced red bell pepper (I used the orange one I had)
8 sliced chicken tenders (I just added them raw and quick cooked them in the broth)
Take soup off heat and add:
4 thinly sliced green onions
Serve in individual bowls and garnish:
Fresh chopped cilantro & good squirt of lime juice


  1. I have never eaten Kale. I bet this soup would be super tasty though! I may have to try it out! Thanks for sharing

  2. It looks so yummy....I was just thinking about it times to make some soup and I love Kale. Hope your week is going great.

  3. WOW!!! That looks so tasty, I am gonna make that!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us :)

  4. I love soup, it used to be my absolute favorite thing to eat before BFC. Hubby uses Kale in his juicer and I don't really like the smell. But I am sure it would be better cooked in soup.
    Have a good one :-)
