I made these this week and just had to share.
I'd never had kale raw before but I guess the acid in the lemon helps to break it down or something (???) It sounds like physics or chemistry to me, but it was a perfectly refreshing lunch.
The soup may seem a bit strange with the cocoa powder, but its so so good and perfect for these chilly winter nights. Seriously, it smells like comfort. And so easy! I like easy. Tips: I used about an extra cup of vegetable stock and added a sweet potato. Also, after it was done cooking I pulled out about a cup and a half and put it through the food processor to thicken it up. I promise, it's still easy! The hardest part was chopping everything.
The sweetness from the butternut squash and sweet potato went perfectly with the cornbread, which doesn't have too much sugar in it. That means it's also perfect with a bit of honey on it for breakfast. Yum!
