Sesame Kale Miso Soup

Yum!  This meal was so simple and easy to prepare, and soooo satisfying and nourishing.  
I didn't take a picture, because I was too busy enjoying. 

real beef bone broth and water ~ enough for one bowl of soup.
1 T coconut oil 
chopped kale ~ I used purple ~ as much as you can cram in the pot   of simmering broth
1 T slowly toasted brown sesame seeds
1 T miso paste*, or, to taste ~ I used brown rice miso.  
  *Make sure it's organic!!! 

You could use water without the bone broth, or use a different kind of broth, like chicken or veggie (recipes in a previous post).  The broth really gives this soup its depth and whole-body nourishing feeling.   
Slowly bring the broth-water to a rolling boil.  Add the coconut oil,  and then the kale.  Simmer, covered, until the kale is soft and wilty.  
In the bowl of your choice, spoon in the miso, and a few spoonfuls of the soup.  Stir to dissolve the miso.  Pour in the rest of the soup and stir.  Garnish with sesame seeds.  
Enjoy and feel nourished! 

*  These days, if a soy product doesn't explicitly say it's organic, you can count on it being GM ~ genetically modified.  Don't be their guinea pig.
