15 Minutes Easy Kale Tortellini Soup

A deliciously simple kale soup with flavorful lite broth, creamy Tortellini pasta and a touch parmesan. This soup speaks "comfort" without undoing your diet.

Also, 15 minutes and just simple 7 easy-to-find ingredients and Kale Tortellini Soup fly from kitchen to dinner table.... or even for weekend lunch for me. :)

Oh, and if you have some leftover Tortellini pasta in refrigerator?! You can serve your family a delicious and comforting soup for dinner today! A rustic bread loaf will be best to dunk in the warm broth.

I'm addicted to serving soups in winter. Recently, I bought heat-safe containers with lid and spoon to pack lunch for dinner.

The base for any good clear soup is broth or stock. I love using vegetable stocks to flavor soups. However, for this soup I specially used homemade Chicken Stock instead of vegetable to add some more depth of flavor. Honestly, chicken stock also boost nutrients in this simple soup without overloading it with calories.

Kale Tortellini Soup comes together super fast. I hardly have to thin...
