Here you find my Kale Soup Vegetarian Recipe.
My soup is a basic soup with many variations. Kale, also called brown cabbage in some German regions, is mainly served in Northern and Central Germany.
There, the beautiful green cabbage usually ends up on the plate heavily overcooked with fatty meat and sausages.
So far, the traditional way. I am a friend of the use of regional ingredients, which are prepared according to the modern spirit of the time.
I do not want to deprive our cabbage of its vitamins and colour and prefer short cooking times.
Optics and taste experience are suddenly sensational and let the vegetables shine in new splendor!
Have fun cooking and combining! Bon appetit!

Simple Guide for Vegetarian Kale Soup
|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!
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.

5. Tip for Kale Soup as Cream Soup
The kale soup is a soup pureed with a hand blender.
You would have two options for the soup:
1. Do not Strain the soup:
Finely blend the soup and do not pass it through a sieve.
This keeps the fiber in the soup and creates a naturally bound soup.
2. Strain the soup:
Finely blend the soup, let stand for a few minutes.
Strain the soup through a fine sieve.
Before serving, blend with ice-cold butter until frothy.
This basic soup is delicious in itself.
To make the soup even more exciting, I have prepared a simple soup bowl and a matching decoration.
The eye finally eats with!
Garnish for the soup, my variant:
- Potatoes peeled,
- diced and blanched Onions in strips, caramelized in the pan with sugar
- Radish seedlings
- Chili Flakes
