Think green: Kale soup

Boy, I'm feeling like such a little piggy. I admit it: I have put on A LOT of weight these holidays. Two weeks ago we've decided to go on a little 1-week gastronomic roadtrip and try regional food for lunch AND dinner. So for the past week I've been having nothing but soup, fruit and lots of greens and just the occasional meat - ok, ok, the sausage rolls and the roast don't count; oh, well, I couldn't get away, could I?

For lunch we did a wonderful kale soup.

Boil an onion, 4 potatoes and 4 garlic cloves

At the same time, boil previously shredded kale with half a teaspoon of baking soda

When the onion, potatoes and garlic cloves are done, use a soup blender . 

When the kale is done, add it to the soup and season it with salt.

It's also nice with a couple of slices of spicy sausage.



  1. This sounds really healthy and quite straight-forward to prepare. After returning from vacation heavier than I left, I could really use a week of soups and fruit. Wish me luck!

    1. Oh, yes! Healthy AND tasty! Plus: do you know that time, during New Year's, when we've had all the meat & sweets we could get our hands on but had the end of the party still need some little comfort? Per*fect, I'd say.

  2. Great refreshing soup! Lots of vitamins and minerals to get you back on track. Take care, BAM

    1. Definitely. And many kids love it's taste, which is also an added bonus! :P Thank you for your visit!
