  • 4-5 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 large minced onion
  • 1 lb ground beef (or Italian sausage)
  • 1.5 lbs diced red potatoes
  • 1.5 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 6 cups chicken broth/stock
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk (stirred)
  • 2 cups frozen (or fresh) chopped kale
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • to taste salt and pepper


  • In a soup or stock pot, heat olive oil over medium heat until warm.
  • Add in ground meat and cook until browned. Drain grease if you wish.
  • Add in onions, garlic, salt and pepper and Italian seasoning.. cook until fragrant and translucent. About 3-5 mins
  • Add in potatoes and chicken stock/broth. Cover with lid and simmer until potatoes are softened to your liking. *I like them to easily slide off of the point of a knife- about 20 mins
  • Add in kale, if raw.. cook until softened to your liking.
  • Add more salt and pepper or seasonings to taste.
  • Finally, stir in coconut milk and turn off the heat.
  • The longer it sits and soaks up the flavors, the better!
  • Enjoy!!
