Sweet Potato Kale Soup

If you're looking for a healthier dish with a difference, try this recipe from Tamar Holmes of San Diego, California. White kidney beans, sweet potatoes, kale and plenty of garlic flavor this brothy blend. "It's the perfect winter soup and has soothed me through many a cold," Tamar notes. "It's a cinch to make, too."

    I really liked this recipe, but I made some modifications. Had to use Chicken broth, Added a few tomatoes, Chickpeas instead of cannelini beans, And added some water. This was surprisingly good and didn’t take too long to make.
