Sweet Potato and Kale Soup

This is my new favorite soup! I picked this up courtesy of Joy the Baker and modified it just a tiny bit.

Kale and Sweet Potato Soup
inspired by Food and Wine

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, chopped fine (or 1 tsp ground ginger)
3/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon crushed red peppers
3/4 pound kale, tough stems removed and roughly chopped
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 3/4-inch cubes
2 quarts chicken or vegetable broth
1 teaspoon salt
fresh ground pepper, to taste
1 cup canned unsweetened coconut milk

In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook down until tender and translucent, about five minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, for about 1 minutes.

Add the sweet potato chunks and stir.

Add the chicken or vegetable broth and bring to a simmer.

Add the kale once the broth is simmering and submerge all of the leaves, helping them to cook down.

Cook for about 20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes have become tender.

Add salt and pepper to taste.
