Potato and Kale Soup

I had a big bunch of kale and decided to make kale chips (recipe in previous posts) and soup. This is a great autumn soup. If you want it to be more substantial add some great northern beans.

1 tbsp oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 cups veg broth
2 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (I used more)
1 bay leaf
4 cups chopped stemmed kale

In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cover, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, potatoes, oregano, crushed red pepper, bay leaf, and salt to taste, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
Stir in the kale and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and serve.
