Indian-Spiced Kale and Sweet Potato Soup

Indian-Spiced Kale and Sweet Potato Soup
I created this soup when I was on a mini detox where I mainly consumed fruit and veggies. Whether you need a healing soup for detox purposes or not you'll want to make this warming soup in the cooler months and it is highly adaptable. For the vegans, just add in some beans and for the carnivores try venison, chicken or pork sausage.

    Recipe Notes

    * I love to use a mix of red, yellow and orange mini bell peppers in place of 1 red bell pepper.

    **As this was originally a detox soup, I limited the soup to 1/8-1/4 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt.  If making for detox purposes you can leave out the salt, especially if you do not have Himalayan sea salt.  I included it as this version of salt is a necessary mineral.  If you are making the soup for other purposes add in up to 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt.

    Try adding in beans and/or chicken sausage for a heartier soup.
