Kale Soup

2 pounds of washed and stemmed kale

The other veggies were sautéed in a small amount of olive oil until onions were clear.
I then blended the veggies and the kale (including the water it steamed in) (required 3 batches in the blender) with 2 cups vegetable broth (that’s all.

After returning everything to the pot, add:

1/4 cup nutritional yeast, 2 Tbsp + 2 tsp of McKay’s chicken seasoning (it’s vegan) and 1 tsp dried Basil.
