Kale Broccoli Soup

The spring is starting like a sputtering motor, one day it is warm, the next day it is cold again, then a bit warmer, then it is cold again.….. Today is one of those sunny, but windy and cold days and I felt like a hot soup for lunch. I had bought some fresh broccoli and still had a bunch of curly kale in the fridge. So, kale broccoli soup with fresh goat cheese from the FM  it was.
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 TB olive oil
  • 1/2 bunch of kale, lower parts of stems cut out, rest torn into large pieces
  • 2 cups of broccoli
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled, cut into large chunks
  • 3 cups of vegan bouillon
  • some grate nutmeg
  • 1/2 ts ground garlic
Heat the olive oil and saute the onion until translucent. Add the kale and broccoli, the bouillon  and sweet potato, cover and simmer for about 20min until the broccoli is cooked and the sweet potato soft. Add the nutmeg and garlic. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup into a smooth consistency. Serve with some goat cheese (I am using the local goat cheese from Olde Oak Farm).
