Kale and sweet potato soup at Donna's

$6 Calories: 171 Total fat: 4g Saturated fat: 1g Protein: 6g Dietary fiber: 6g With a salad, you could make a meal out of this classic Italian soup. And if your regimen points you toward nutrient-rich "superfoods," this soup has two of the champs -- sweet potatoes and kale. Donna Crivello's food is not only nourishing, it's beautiful. And aesthetics matter -- if your eyes aren't satisfied, chances are your stomach won't be either. Another key to healthful restaurant dining is simplicity. If the kale soup looks like something you could make yourself, you can. Crivello teaches healthful cooking at her restaurant's Columbia location.Kim Hairston, Baltimore Sun
