07 Jun Creamy Potato Kale Soup

I will be honest here, I am not a fan of winter. I keep telling myself that I need to get into skiing or some winter sport, so I will stop dreading winter and enjoy it, but I have yet to do so. All winter I pretty much live off of warm soups and soy milk steamers from Starbucks.  If you haven’t tried one, you must. Splurge by adding hazelnut and you will praise me forever. I don’t know about you, but nothing can top a good soup on a cold night. This soup is PACKED with veggies. It is dairy free, but has as a creamy, comfort taste. This is a soup the whole family will love.
