Kale and Potato Soup

What you need: 

2 tablespoon olive oil
3 carrots, sliced
3 ribs celery, sliced
1 large or 2 medium onions, diced
4 cloves garlic, 2 minced, 2 sliced
3-4 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 large bunch kale, washed, stemmed, and coarsely chopped
2, 14-ounce cans vegetarian chicken broth (or equivalent amount of vegetable broth)
2-4 cups water
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (or 1 tablespoon dried)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 cup soy milk

What you do: 

1. Sauté the carrots, celery, and onion in the olive oil over medium heat until the onions are translucent. Add the garlic and sauté 3 minutes further.
2. Add the cubed potato and toss with the other vegetables. Let cook 2 minutes. Toss the kale with the other vegetables and wilt slightly for about 3-5 minutes.
3. Add the vegetarian chicken broth (or vegetable broth) and enough water to cover the vegetables by one inch, parsley, thyme, bay leaf, and salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over medium heat for about 20-30 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
4. Remove 3-4 cups of soup and put in blender with the soymilk. Puree. Return the puree to the soup pot and simmer another 10 minutes.

This was a "souper" easy recipe and tasted delicious. I didn't use any oil and it still turned out great.  Definitely will make it again when I need to put together something quick for dinner!


This recipe was pretty good.  I probably won't make it again, though, just because I've found another potato soup recipe I enjoy more.  Maybe I'll add kale to that!  :)
