Why you’ll love this potato kale soup: 

  • Quick: Lots of soup recipes require you to keep them on the stove for hours, this one does not! Make this bad boy up in only 35 minutes
  • Healthy: Anything with kale in it has to be loaded with nutrients right? Right!
  • Meal Prep: This recipe is great for meal prep because it lasts in the fridge for days OR freezes nicely

Ingredient Notes: 

Kale: Kale is definitely a superfood. It’s high in fiber, antioxidants, calcium, vitamins C and K, plus iron (just to mention a few). It also is so versatile. Eat it in a salad, make chips, throw it in a smoothie, add it to soup, the options are endless.

Potatoes: Use whatever potatoes you want or have in your cupboard here, but waxy potatoes or those called boiling potatoes work well as they have a thin skin that breaks down well in soup. 

Coconut Milk: I love coconut milk in this recipe but if you want you can use oat milk, almond milk, or even soy milk!  If you’re not vegan you can use regular milk or even regular milk and a bit of half and a half!

How do you make potato kale soup? 

  1. Heat a large pot on medium heat for 30 seconds before melting the butter in the pot.  To the pot, add the onions and garlic and cook for 5 minutes or until the onions are translucent in color.
  2. To the pot, add garlic, salt, pepper, and potatoes.  Stir everything to completely coat and then cook for 5-10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  3. Increase the heat to high, add the vegetable stock paste, nutritional yeast, water, kale, and coconut milk to the pot.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to medium and cook for 10 more minutes till completely cooked.
  4. Let the mixture cool slightly, transfer to a and blend till smooth.
  5. Serve with olive oil and some little bulbs of coconut milk.

Expert Tips & FAQ: 

Can I substitute the butter? If you don’t want to use butter then use 2 tbsp. of olive to start the recipe.

I hate kale. What can I use instead? If you don’t want to use kale you can use spinach or swiss chard.

I don’t have vegetable stock paste. What can I swap it with? If you do not have vegetable stock paste you can use 5 cups of vegetable stock.  Just make sure you don’t use the water as well.

What is nutritional yeast? Do I have to use it? This is a fun nutty ingredient that is so delicious in all soups but if you don’t have access to the nutritional yeast you can add 1/2 cup – 1 cup of vegan or regular cheese. Nutritional yeast is also super good with you so it adds in those added nutrients!

It’s really hard to replace a good old classic broccoli soup, especially compared with the mighty kale that isn’t that friendly, but this recipe and the creaminess to it, well done!

Maria Koutsogiannis
