Kale, Cauliflower and Chorizo Soup

I know kale is meant to be a wonder food… but generally I don’t like it! It’s bitter, it’s tough and it seems to have few redeeming features other than its nutritional value. (Come on, we all know I like food to be tasty!)

This soup seems to make it palatable… Actually, pretty tasty!
