Yes, it is 85 degrees in Cal town. Yes, winter has been over since it began. Yes, I sweated buuuuullets while eating this soup and melted on the ground afterwards and muttered incoherently, “I’m soooo hoooooot” over and over while the boyfriend rolled his eyes (And then got smart and refrigerated the leftovers to enjoy the soup cold for future meals). Yes, I’m jealous of how impeccable Adam Levine’s posture is. Wha Whaaaat? As I slouch on my couch tip typing away while watching The Voice, I wish I had another pot of this kale and artichoke soup to enjoy as a bloggy snack.
As excited I am about this soup, can I just say how emotionally distraught I am about the knock out round between Sasha and Shawna? Even though Sasha is out-of-this-world talented, Shawna’s raspy earthy deep voice is bonkers amazing and I’m just going to miss that saucy momma…ugh! Team Shakira, represent!
Okay. Normalcy. We. shall…take it down an octave.
This soup comes together astonishingly quickly…it’s one of those recipes that at the end, you say to yourself, “that’s it?” And then you take in a spoonful and think you’ve gone to heaven. So easy, so tasty, so healthy. Give the soup a little drizzle of olive oil before serving. Perchance a garlic-infused olive oil? Citrus-infused? Get real fancy, folks!
I enjoyed this soup both hot and cold. I heated it on the stove after it came out of the blender and ate the leftovers chilled for a refreshing meal-beverage. If it’s hot where you’re at, I highly suggest serving this soup chilled!
