This soup resembles a callaloo, which is typically made with taro leaves in place of the kale and with the addition of a hot pepper to add some kick.  My family isn’t big into spice, so this is a mild version of the soup, which still has a lovely flavor and is a great alternative way to get both your green veggies and your bone broth!



1.    Combine all ingredients except creamed coconut in a large pot.  Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
2.    Simmer uncovered for 20-25 minutes, until veggies are nice and soft.
3.    Puree soup using an immersion blender (you could do this in a conventional blender but be careful not to burn yourself!).  Note:  if the stocks of your thyme sprigs are very tough, you might want to remove them before pureeing.
4.    Add creamed coconut, stir to dissolve.  Enjoy!
