Although I’m still in Brazil visiting my family and enjoying the warm weather, I know that most of my readers are in the northern hemisphere and they are all facing very cold weather. My friends and family in Canada are telling us that these days are really cold. So, because I’m with you my dear readers, I’m sharing today this comforting Ground Beef Butternut Squash Kale Soup to warm you up a little bit.
This soup is made with real and good ingredients for you such as extra-lean ground beef, butternut squash and kale, which will make you and your family very satisfied without feeling guilt. Why? Because, comforting foods don’t need to be full of unhealthy fats and white carbs, right?!
Also, this Ground Beef Butternut Squash Kale Soup is for you who have a crazy busy life, but still want to eat as healthy as possible even though you don’t have much time to cook. It’s so easy to prepare and it’ll be done in less than 30 minutes. Awesome!
You’ll start this recipe with olive oil, ground beef and garlic. Then, you’ll add yellow onions, celery, red peppers, chopped tomato, butternut squash and vegetable broth. Finally after all these ingredients simmer up, you’ll add kale for extra colour, texture and nutrients.
This soup is also for those who made 2018 the year to eat healthier without scarifying in flavor because this soup is BIG TIME flavorful. There is something about this combo (ground beef, butternut squash and kale) that makes the whole dish tastes amazing.
I’m totally obsessed with this combo and I bet you will be too, once you try it. IT IS SO DARN GOOD. It literally checks all the boxes – healthy, super nutritious, extremely awesome flavour, gluten-free, paleo and easy and quick to make. Also the ingredients are pretty simple and probably you have all of them in your kitchen. If you don’t like butternut squash you can replace it for sweet potato or if you aren’t a big fan of kale you can swap for spinach. Isn’t that amazing?! It’s definitely the best recipe to kick your new year off right.
