Root Vegetable and Kale Soup

We’re definitely in soup season now. I had some kale left over from making more Kale and Potato Curry that needed using up quickly so I thought I’d make a root vegetable soup using that and some root veg I had in the fridge. Kale works really well in a soup like this and it is so good for you.

Makes 5 servings


1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2cm ginger, finely chopped
1 red chilli, finely chopped
100g potato, diced
200g swede, diced
200g carrots, chopped
1.3 litres of vegetable stock
2 Bayleaves
125g curly kale, stems removed and roughly chopped
Small bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Frylight Olive oil spray


1. Spray the cold pan with Frylight olive oil spray (15 sprays should do it), heat the pan and then saute the onions for about 5 mins or until softened.
2. Add the garlic, ginger and chilli and cook for another 2 minutes.
3. Add the stock, carrot, potato, swede and bayleaves along with a little salt and pepper then bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
4. Remove the bayleaves and add the kale and parsley, return to the boil and simmer for another 10 mins or until the kale is cooked, adjust seasoning if necessary.
