Baby Kale and Rice Soup-BakinTime

Beth M.


I must confess! This started out as a side-dish, on the weekend we had a rice pilaf, and the next day I made it into a soup by adding baby kale and broth. So I had to retrace my steps to write this recipe. I love soups, and the fresh vegetables looked so good to me at the market, that I bought a box of fresh kale and then decided to combine it with the rice and vegetables from the day before. It makes me feel very frugal to use what I have! This reminds me of my mother.
