“My husband likes to shop with a list. I like to be spontaneous and see what’s alive and happy. One day we found beautiful, crisp Tuscan kale at the farmers market in California, and even though it wasn’t on our list, I had to have it! We developed this recipe to highlight it, and it’s now a regular in our soup repertoire.” ~ Rebecca
Although this soup could very easily be considered Tuscan-style, the name actually comes from the type of kale we like to use: Tuscan kale, also known as lacinato, dinosaur or black kale. You can also use regular curly kale if you can’t find Tuscan.
Another nice variation is French Country Soup. (See Variations for details.)
