This soup tastes like a bowl full of goodness – and it is! The onion and garlic are sauteed so they’re soft and fragrant.
The potatoes are added and cooked with the soup. Once blended they make it rich, thick and creamy. Vegetable stock/broth gives the soup flavour and bulk and then kale is added for all of that green goodness.
I’ve added milk for creaminess. You can easily use dairy free milk to make this soup vegan and dairy free.
You only need store cupboard ingredients to go with it and soon you’ll have a dish of green goodness.
milk (dairy or non-dairy)
salt and pepper
- This recipe is naturally vegetarian and gluten-free.
- Make it vegan: swap the milk for non-dairy milk: soy milk, almond milk or hemp milk all work well.
- I like to jazz up my soup with soup toppers such as herby beans or a drizzle of cream and a sprinkling of seeds.
- If you’re looking for something to make this soup a bit heartier, try my garlic and herb skillet rolls or soft and fluffy milk rolls.
- Every time I make a batch of kale soup, the colour comes out different. It depends on how large a handful of kale you add, it’s freshness etc…
How to make Kale Soup
Step 1: To make this kale soup you simply need to sautee the garlic, onion and potatoes in a little oil for a few minutes until they soften.
Step 2: Then just add in the vegetable stock (broth) and let it cook for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Once that’s done, add the chopped kale and milk (dairy free for vegan) and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Step 4: Simmer the soup until the kale is soft.
Step 5: Blend with a blender or stick blender.
Then just tuck in! It’s rich and thick from the potatoes, with a vibrant green hue from the kale. I like to serve mine sprinkled with seeds for a bit of texture.
