Grocery Shopping when Hungry? Yes, I know, I always preach my followers to enter the grocery store after your meals and look here what I did. I happily went ahead on an empty stomach to fill my kitchen pantry and refrigerator. By now you must have guessed that not only my pantries got overloaded but my budget also went overboard.
Lesson Learnt – always be diligent and careful while picking up attractive stuffs from the grocery store 🙂
But in all this I found Purple Kale. Thankfully I was mindful to pick some healthy stuff for myself. Beautiful and vibrant purple kale sitting in my refrigerator enticed me to cook this Kale Bulgur Soup. After all, some mistakes do have slight positive effects as well. And since I decided to pick extra packs of delicious and fiber enriched Bulgur I quickly combined them both in a soup. Because I was really hungry!!! And waiting to eat something healthy all this while was tougher than my workouts!!!!! 🙂 But I managed and passed with flying colors 🙂
When I sautéed purple kale in warm oil it started to change its color to extremely bright, shiny and aromatic green color. When I seasoned it with salt and black pepper and added some vegetable broth the soup was thicker and creamier and so much more inviting than regular green baby kale. Lastly, I added whole grain, high protein and fiber rich, good carbohydrate and one of my favorite ancient grains – Bulgur in the soup, to make it a complete meal.
Slurp! Slurp! Slurp! Was the only sound around me and I could hear myself relishing this dinner. A bowl of warm Kale Bulgur Soup on a cold wintery night after the ‘expensive’ shopping was extremely satisfying and blissful.
