Favorite Recipe Friday: Creamy Potato Kale Soup

This Whole30 friendly soup makes a creamy, filling meal.

I did another round of Whole30 with a friend over the last few weeks (mine was Whole20 this time). It was fun to experience this diet at a different time of year with different kinds of foods.

This soup really hit the spot. These are some of my other favorite Whole30 recipes.

2 tsp. olive oil
1 lb ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
4 c. chicken broth
3 medium russet potatoes, roughly cubed
Approx. 4 c. chopped kale
13.5 oz. can coconut milk


1. Heat oil in a large pot. Add ground turkey and cook on medium-high until browned.

2. Add the onion, Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper and sauté for 3 minutes.

3. Add the garlic and stir.

4. Add the chicken broth and potatoes. Bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes.

5. Stir in kale and coconut milk. Simmer for another 5 minutes.


Favorite Recipe Friday: Crockpot Mango Chicken

I try to use the oven as little as possible in the summer, so I’m a big fan of crockpot meals. This is a delectable, sweet and spicy recipe, and it works great as a Whole30 meal! (Remember when I tried Whole30? Good times…)


½ c. orange mango juice
¼ c. light coconut milk
1 tsp. ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp. habanero pepper, minced
1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped into large wedges
1 lb. chicken breasts
2 tsp. curry powder
2 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
1 large mango, cubed
1 Tbsp. diced cilantro for garnish


  1. Whisk together orange mango juice, coconut milk, ginger, garlic, and habanero in the bottom of a crockpot.
  2. Put the sweet potato wedges in an even layer on the sauce mixture.
  3. Rub both sides of the chicken breast with the curry powder. Lay the chicken breast on top of the sweet potatoes, cover, and cook on low heat for approximately 6 hours.
  4. Put the chicken mixture in a serving bowl. Add the coconut flakes and mango. Garnish with cilantro and extra sauce from the crockpot.

-Can be served over rice or cauliflower rice or you can eat it as is.
-The habanero adds a little heat to this sweet dish. Adjust the amount of habanero as you see fit.
