So I promised that I would post a picture of the veggies that I'm trying to identify. Here ya go:

My 'expert' guess is that this is kale. I'm not 100% sure of my guess but I'm going to go with it because I love my one kale recipe. Sharing it here since I got a request. Even the kids like this one! I can hardly wait until tomorrow night when I get to eat this!! YUMMY! If you make it, let me know what you think! (Thanks to Lisa Baker who introduced me to kale and gave me this recipe.)

8 oz. kielbasa, thinly sliced (I use turkey kielbasa because it seems a little healthier)
1Tbs. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
29 oz of reduced sodium chicken broth (2 cans)
2 cans cannellini beans (or Great Northern beans)
4 cups chopped kale (sometimes I use fresh spinach)
1. Brown kielbasa in large saucepan over med-high heat about 4 mins. Remove from pan.
2. Add oil to pan and cook garlic about a minute. Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add beans,
and simmer 5 minutes.
3. Remove 1 cup of soup, including beans, and puree in blender until smooth. Stir bean puree, cooked sausage,
and chopped kale into soup and simmer until kale is tender, about 5-7 mins.
Makes 6 1/2 cups (4 servings)
