Mixed Greens and potato Soup

Ok so I knew going in this was gonna be a very hard sell. J doesn’t like most greens (except sautéed spinach or rapini) and while he eats soups he is not the biggest fan of them.

BUT I really believe consistent offering is important the key to raising a great eater in the LONG TERM.
J didn’t really eat much of the soup at all. However, he did try the greens 5-10 times. Each time he spat them out but after a min or so he would try again. To me this is great progress! It’s more than he has done in the past.

4 cups broth (chicken or veggie)
1 lb baby potatoes, halved
1 small onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 small bunches of any type of greens you like (we used kale, chard and broccoli leaf), stemmed and chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup grated parm
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper for adult portions

1⃣Heat oil in pot and sauté onions and garlic until soft.
2⃣Add broth, potato and greens and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer covered for 30 mins until potatoes and fork tender.
3⃣Add lemon juice and parm and stir. Serve.

J ate a bite or two of greens and potato a sip or two of broth, 1.5 slices of bread served with soup and 3 slices of cantaloupe.
