North African Chickpea and Kale Soup - This richly spiced chickpea and kale soup, redolent of cinnamon, saffron, and ginger, is as delicious as it is good-for-you.  Two words: TRY IT

This particular soup is a nutritional powerhouse. The carrots provide beta carotene, the chickpeas offer protein, and the kale…well the kale is a powerhouse all on its own. It’s rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, potassium, copper, manganese, and calcium. Plus, it’s one of the cruciferous vegetables proven to reduce the risk of a number of cancers as well as heart disease. Eat more kale!
