This Kale Tomato Tortellini Soup has become the favorite soup at home just because it is so flavorful and easy to make ever!
I am writing this post it was at 5AM. Not that I like to wake up so early, but now that I am pregnant, I wake up at this time every single day for no reason. I try to go back to sleep, but I can’t. I also tried to watch some videos or read articles online talking about how to sleep better during pregnancy and none of these tips or strategies work for me. So what I do? I wake up and work on my blog. Done! The problem is solved! This sleep situation is totally fine by me. I’m not complaining. In fact, I think it is a good thing to happen. I feel like my body is preparing itself for when my baby arrives and I have to spend nights awake.
So, talking about waking up very early… Every time when I wake up, I look at the window and all I can see the darkness and the chilly days. This is the worst part of the fall/winter time, but the best part is the comfort food. And for me, this cold fall weather just makes me think about soup. Soup of any kind; spinach sweet potato soup, beet soup, ground turkey pasta soup, and so on. Why? Because for me, soup is the most comforting food we can have during this time of the year. Who doesn’t like a hot and flavorful bowl of this goodie with some delicious garlic bread?! Yummy! At home, we love this recipe because it is the easiest soup to make and it is still very tasty. I made this soup one of these past lazy Sundays and it only took me 15 minutes to make.
I opened my freezer and I saw I had a package of frozen tortellini in there. I was thinking about what to make, but I didn’t want to make anything very complicated. So I thought a healthy soup should be the way to go. I chopped some kale, onions, and minced some garlic. I didn’t even dice fresh tomatoes since I had a can of those in my small pantry. Bring some broth to a boil and wait until the tortellini be cooked through. And that is all you need to do! I mean, how hard is that? I have to confess, even I was surprised how fast it was. When I served my husband, he asked me if it was tasty. I sad “I hope so”. And it was d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!!! I recommend you fill your tummy with this kale tomato tortellini soup and let me know what you think.
