Healthy Portuguese Kale Soup Recipe

Portuguese Kale Soup

Quickly make this healthy soup! You're whole family will love it :D It makes a great lunch or dinner; freezes well and is a good meal prepping recipe. This looks super fancy when you make it too, so it would be great for a pot-luck or family gathering. 
Tip: When preparing your leeks, you need to wash them well, slice them, put in a large bowl of water and swish around. Allow it to set for a minute to let any sand in the leeks settle to the bottom and then fish out the leeks with a slotted spoon (if you use a strainer you may get sand in your food). Leeks are so good and taste similar to onions, but have a deeper flavor. *See more photos below.
