Island Kale and Sweet-Potato Soup
Crinkly kale leaves are wonderfully sturdy and flavorful, making them especially well-suited to soups. Remove and discard the thick stems and then wash the leaves really well before adding them to a dish. The twists and turns of kale leaves are great places for dirt to hide.
Foods with a bit of sweetness invite some in the wine as well. Good choices would include an off-dry Chenin Blanc from California or a similarly off-dry Riesling from Washington State.
