Kale Soup

  • Kale Soup and bread on a table.

    I’ve been still struggling to recover from a recent cold and all I want is to have delicious warm soups.  Then I remember that I have this really good Kale Soup recipe post that I haven’t been able to share this summer due to all the BBQ and Ice Cream recipes I posted.  Now it seems like a perfect time to share this post as this is a quick, delicious, and nutritious soup!

    I saw my friend Patty’s Kale Soup post on her blog Patty’s Food back in May and I was really excited to try this recipe.  Kale is a green, leafy vegetable that is part of the cabbage family.  Kale provides iron, magnesium, fiber and is loaded with vitamins A and C.  I like to make a soup with it or bake it into kale chips.

    Speaking of which, my friend Divya from Flavor Fiesta made a really cute video on how to make chipotle-flavored kale chips that I love below.

    Back to the Kale Soup, this is a really easy and appetizing soup that I hope you will give it a try.  With the leftover Crème Fraîche (the white cream on top of the soup – I bought it at Trader Joe’s.), I baked something with it to be shared on the next post.  Have a great week everyone, and stay well!

    9. Transfer the soup into a blender and pulverize. Remove the little circle part of your blender top and put a towel over the entire lid of the blender, covering the hole. This will allow the steam to escape so the top won’t pop off.

    10. Pour the soup back into the soup pan. Adjust the seasoning based on yuur preference and serve into bowls. Garnish with the Crème Fraîche and mint leaves.
