Curried Coconut Kale Soup

This is one of my favorite recipes.  I got my inspiration from "Willy the food Dabbler" who used to work at the Berkeley Whole Foods.  He would always be demo-ing his recipes there.  The original idea came from a recipe of his.  I have changed it a little over time to make it mine.
It is a truly nourishing divine soup.

NOTES : Can be a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Kale is an amazingly nourishing vegetable.  It has more absorbable calcium than milk.  Kale is a  great anti-cancer vegetable and it may help to regulate estrogen and fight off many forms of cancer, including breast, bowel, bladder, prostate and lung cancer.
