I loved this and so did my husband. He never had kale and really enjoyed it in this soup! Another great vegetarian meal!

Delicious and healthful!

This was very easy to make, cheap, and absolutely delicious! And I feel good and healthy after eating it.

Loved this recipe! So easy and nutritious! The red bell pepper and green spinach make the soup look as good as it tastes. I used chicken stock instead of the bouillon and omitted the rice. I also added some crushed red pepper to give it a kick. My friends loved it.
