last night i made creamy kale soup...quick shout out to my client natalie for finding the recipe in Athens Magazine! 
it was very good....not amazing...but very good!  here is what i did...
one big white potato, peeled, cubed, boiled, and mashed
saute 2 carrot sticks, 2 celery stalks, one onion, 3 garlic cloves (all chopped) in 3 tablespoons olive oil for about 10 minutes, then add all veggies to mashed potatoes in a big pot.  pour 4-5 cups of water over all veggies and bring to a boil.  simmer for 5 minutes.
put it all in a food processor or blender (be careful here, make sure lid doesn't pop off due to steam!) and process until desired consistency (i left it a little chunky), then put it back in the pot and add washed and chopped kale (about 4 cups), juice from one lemon, and 2 tablespoons chicken or vegetable base/bouillon.  cook for another 5-10 minutes to thicken it up. top with some chopped chives.  i served it with some grilled chicken for a complete meal.

here are some other kale recipes i found that looked really good...let me know if you try one!
