Featured Recipe: Greens, Sweet Potato and Chicken Soup with Almonds
Dark leafy greens, namely Collards, Kale and Mustard Greens are powerhouses of vitamins, fiber and other plant based health benefits. But the taste and texture of these strong greens is a bit much for most people.
Having grown up in the south, collards were a staple at our table and I love the chewy, bittersweet taste that comes along with it. Others may have grown up with kale or mustard greens as a childhood staple and have a similar love for them.
But one way for even the non-green lovers to enjoy the obvious health benefits is to mix them in with other savory flavors. The wellness payoff is still there with today’s recipe for Collards, Sweet Potato and Chicken Soup with Almonds; but the strong flavor of the greens is matched by the other low fat ingredients marrying them together in culinary bliss.
I prefer collards in this soup, but mustard greens and kale will work just as well. If using fresh greens of any kind, the cooking time will increase by almost 20 to 30 minutes, so if possible to keep the prep time down, use frozen chopped greens.

Our Cookbooks rock!
What you're saying..
I wanted to take the time to say that your cookbook has been the best addition to my kitchen! I'm not a great cook and my youngest son is an extremely picky eater which makes cooking frustrating, but I've found several recipes that he likes & I enjoy making. I like how you walk through the steps to actually put things together. Many times, I've read the "prep times" in a recipe & go "Oh, yeah, right - I need to add another 30 minutes to their estimate." Your cookbook is really accurate and that makes my life much easier!
I really enjoy the notes & stories that you add to the recipes. They're informative, helpful and just nice reading. Thank you again for making a positive change to my kitchen.
