Kale Soup vegetarian
A delicious green soup recipe. Step by step instructions and possible combinations for your personal soup highlight.
|1-2||pc||onion (I like to use shallots.)|
|140||g||Soup vegetables (carrot, celery, leek)|
|1||tbs||butter (or rape oil)|
|100||ml||Cream (or soy cream)|
Garnish for the soup
|2||pc||Potatoes (medium size!)|
|2||tbs||oliv oil (or sunflower oil)|
Prepare the potatoes as an insert
Peel the potatoes and cut into 1 cm cubes. Blanch the potato cubes in salted water until firm to the bite, drain and prepare for later serving.
Prepare onions as topping
Cut 2 red onions into strips. Lightly fry them in a frying pan with oil. Sprinkle the onion strips in the pan with brown sugar and caramelise. Set aside for later serving.
Prepare curly kale soup
Peel the onion and cut into strips or cubes. Wash, peel and chop the soup vegetables evenly. Sauté the vegetables in the pot with the butter until colourless for 6-8 minutes. Then deglaze with white wine.
Place the washed kale leaves one by one on the board and cut out the panicle generously. Put some leaves aside for kale chips.
Add remaining kale to the soup mixture and cook for 1 minute with lid.
The kale has now collapsed, add the stock and let the soup base simmer without a lid for about 10 minutes. This way the green colour of the kale is preserved.
Mix the curly kale soup with a hand blender, add cream and leave to stand for another 10 minutes. Do not boil the soup any more!
Arrange and serve
Warm up the soup plates. Place the soup on the plate and add the potato cubes as garnish.
Garnish the soup with a topping of caramelized onions and radish seedlings plus chili flakes. Bon appetit!
