Potato-Kale Soup with Gruyère

This was the main course for dinner last night. Ate and conversed with a beautiful woman with whom I'd like to spend more time. Delicious. Nuff said.

Potato-Kale Soup with Gruyère

2tablespoons butter
1 ½cups finely chopped onion
1garlic clove, minced
7cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
4cups coarsely chopped peeled Yukon gold potato (about 1 ½ pounds)
¼teaspoon salt
1bay leaf
6cups chopped fresh kale (about ¼ pound)
1teaspoon dried basil
9tablespoons (about 2 ounces) Gruyère cheese
  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, cook 8 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add garlic, cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Stir in broth, potato, salt, and bay leaf, bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until potato is tender.
  2. Stir in kale and basil. Cover and simmer 10 minutes or until kale is tender. Discard bay leaf. Partially mash potatoes with a potato masher until thick and chunky. Top with cheese. Yields 6 servings (serving size 1 2/3 cups soup and 1 ½ tablespoons cheese).

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
