Confession: I have never cooked anything with Kale! Lauren of Love Lola is breaking my fear of Kale with this incredible recipe….

This soup was inspired by a spinach and broccoli soup recipe I found once. It was an immediate hit with my family flavor-wise, and a hit with me, nutritionally. My husband began asking for “the green soup” for dinner on a regular basis. I thought it would be fun to switch things up and try some different vegetables to add a little variation. I played around with it a little bit and fell in love with this kale and cauliflower combination. Not to mention, this soup is literally the only way I can get my husband to eat kale. The extra cheese on top definitely helps…

Whether it’s this soup, or another vegetable focused soup, I love to keep recipes like this on the menu as the cooler weather approaches. It can serve as a great substitute to the warm comfort food we all crave, but without tacking on all the extra calories. This kale and cauliflower soup recipe is also a great way to sneak in some extra veggies into your diet. I love to plan ahead and make it for dinner on days when I know I am otherwise not going to be getting the vegetables that I need.
