Italian Turkey Kale Soup

I got this recipe from Vani Hari, theFoodBabe on Instagram and it became one of my go to recipes this winter.  It's warm and comforting, keeps you satisfied and it's so simple to make.

Serves 4 persons
1 lb ground turkey breast
3 stalks celery, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups chicken broth (home made or store bought)
2 cups filtered water
1 bay leaf
2 cups of kale, chopped
Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Papa Vince Sea Salt
Black Pepper

1.  Heat the EVOO in a pot over medium heat.  Add the turkey and cook 3-4 minutes or until slightly browned.
2.  Add the celery, carrots, onion, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper.  Cook for 5 more minutes until the vegetables are tender.
3.  Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.
4.  Increase the heat and add the chicken broth, water and bay leaf.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat.  Simmer for 20 minutes.
5.  Remove the bay leaf and add the kale 5 minutes before serving.
6.  Serve with a drizzle of EVOO on top, it enhances the flavor and gives you a helping of healthy fats for the day!
If you have any leftovers, it tastes even better warmed up the next day.

Risotto is a truly Italian Dish.  We don't eat it in Sicily though, it's a comfort food from Northern Italy.  Risotto is made with a short grain rice known as Arborio and the dish gets its creamy consistency by adding broth to the rice and allowing the liquid to be absorbed as you go.
