Smoky Kale Chickpea Farro Soup {Superfood Saturday}

Smoky Kale Chickpea Farro Soup is a vegetarian soup perfect for the crisp fall weather packed with kale, chickpeas, vegetables, farro and mixed with smoked paprika.

Smoky Kale Chickpea Farro Soup

Welcome to another edition of Superfood Saturday featuring a Smoky Kale Chickpea Farro Soup.

This series started with 21 Ways to Use Kale and showcased some great ways to cook with kale including a Garden Vegetable Breakfast Bowl , Sweet Italian Sausage Soup with Kale and Cheesy Parmesan Croutons and Pesto Penne with Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale.

My favorite way to eat kale other than in salads is to add it to soups.  I find that my family will actually eat it because it is tender and blends in nicely with the other soup ingredients. I personally think that it is ridiculous I have to hide it in a soup, but hey, whatever it takes to get this super veggie in my families belly.  😉
