Garlic and Kale Soup
Mmm...this one was a winner. Also from this month's Vegetarian Times (it's easy to tell what I was reading before going to the grocery store), this was a yummy soup with kale, shiitake mushrooms, wheat berries, and lots of garlic. This requires some planning ahead to let the wheat berries soak, but otherwise comes together pretty quickly. I served it while the kale was still a bit crunchy because that's how I like it (my boyfriend said he would have preferred it softer). The kale does get softer as it sits, so for leftovers it will be soft; the soup does reheat nicely.
