3 TBSP olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely diced
1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
3 medium garlic cloves, minced
6 cups water
12 ounces kale, stems removed, rinsed and julienned
freshly ground pepper


1. Heat the oil in a dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat.

2. Add the onion, potato, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the water and 2 tsp salt and bring to a boil.

7. Stir the kale into the soup and cook about 5 more minutes or until kale is tender.
