“It is disturbingly cold out D, uh uh”, my friend said to me on the phone minutes after I woke up on Saturday.
“Like, I don’t feel so good right now.”
“Damn, it’s cold like that for real?” I asked.
“Shiiiiiiiiiit”, she replied.
Kale & Butternut Squash Soup
What I Used.
3-4 cups Fresh Kale Leaves. 4 cups Chicken Broth. 2 cups Diced Squash. 1 tsp minced Ginger. 1/2 cup Diced Scallions. Olive Oil. Salt. Pepper. Crushed Red Pepper. Leftover Turkey/Chicken (whatever you got).
What I Did.
Well first, put some really good music on.
Get your holiday cheer going.
Then heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a medium pot.
Add in the scallions and minced ginger.
Stir for a min to soften the scallions a bit.
Then add in the chicken broth, squash and kale.
Bring to a boil.
Season with salt & pepper.
Shake in some crushed red pepper.
Cover and lower heat.
Cook for about 15 mins or until the squash is tender.
Add in shreds of that leftover meat.
Or keep it vegetarian, that works too.
Adjust seasoning as needed.
