We served this Potato and Kale Soup to the Almanac editors and everyone loved it! The soup is especially welcome in the winter months, when kale is at its peak.

4 strips bacon, diced
4 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, chopped
6 cups low-sodium chicken stock
2 cups firmly packed chopped kale leaves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a soup pot, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside on paper towels to drain.

Add potatoes, onions, and garlic to bacon drippings in soup pot and cook for 5 minutes. Add stock, kale, salt, and pepper and simmer for an hour, or until potatoes are soft.

Transfer soup to a blender or food processor and puree in batches. Return to soup pot and thin with stock if necessary.

Serve topped with bacon.
