About the recipe
It's so simple to make:
The onion and garlic are sauteed so they're soft and fragrant.
The potatoes are added and cooked with the soup. Once blended they make it rich, thick and creamy.
Vegetable stock/broth gives the soup flavour and bulk and then kale is added for all of that green goodness.
I've added milk for creaminess. You can easily use dairy free milk to make this soup vegan and dairy free.
Voila! A filling, rich, quick and easy kale soup recipe.
Make a big batch, fill up your freezer and have a healthy soup on hand for easy lunches, dinners and appetizers.
You only need store cupboard ingredients to go with it and soon you'll have a dish of green goodness.
milk (dairy or non-dairy)
salt and pepper
I like to jazz up my soup with soup toppers such as herby beans or a drizzle of cream and a sprinkling of seeds.
If you're looking for something to make this soup a bit heartier, try my garlic and herb skillet rolls or soft and fluffy milk rolls.
Every time I make a batch of kale soup, the colour comes out different. It depends on how large a handful of kale you add, it's freshness etc...
This recipe is naturally vegetarian and gluten-free.
Make it vegan: swap the milk for non-dairy milk: soy milk, almond milk or any nut milk all work well.
How to make Kale Soup
This is such a simple soup recipe! You only need a few ingredients and soon you'll be tucking into this velvety creamy soup!
Check out this picture tutorial, then scroll down to the recipe card for the full ingredients and instructions.
1: To make this kale soup you simply need to sautee the garlic, onion and potatoes in a little oil for a few minutes until they soften.
2: Then just add in the vegetable stock (broth) and let it cook for 10 minutes.
3: Once that's done, add the chopped kale and milk (dairy free for vegan) and cook for a further 3 minutes.
4: Simmer the soup until the kale is soft.
5: Blend with a blender or stick blender.
Then just tuck in! It's rich and thick from the potatoes, with a vibrant green hue from the kale.
I like to serve mine sprinkled with seeds for a bit of texture.
A drizzle of cream or soy cream makes it pretty and extra creamy.

Absolutely delicious and comforting, thank you <3
Could I leave out the potatoes? 😘
Hi, you can for sure. It will just be thinner consistency and less 'creamy'. But should still taste good!
Great soup. Thank you. I added per portion one tps of cashew creme. Beautiful
So exciting to get a new recipe for vegetarian soup! Modified to suit myself, didn't fry the onion and garlic, just boiled in the stock, and i didn't add milk. The soup was DELICIOUS! Thank you for a recipe I will use over and over again in the future! So tasty!
I hardly ever give 5 stars as this means there is no room for improvement, but this soup deserves that accolade, absolutely delicious! (And Nutritious)
I followed this to a t and it is vry good. I feel healthy!
My favourite kale soup. I also added some spinach leaves.
I made kale soup today. I used organic Tuscan kale and a white onion and white sweet potatoe, and a little fresh nutmeg at the blending stage. It was very nice, thank you! Now I can't wait to make the beetroot soup, it look fabulous.
Kind regards ️Linda
I made a paleo version of this by replacing potatoes aith sweet potato. It was delish. Thank you for this recipe.
I never know what to do with Kale, this was a really tasty suggestion! We loved it.
This was a really tasty soup and it doesn't take that long to cook, that is a win for me.
I haven't tried the kale soup, and this makes me curious! I will save you recipe 🙂
This is delicious and easy. I didn’t have any potatoes so I cheated and added some instant potatoes to thicken it. Freezes great, too, so you can have it even faster!
I have made a kale soup before but not like this creamy kind. This is so pretty. I'm an interested in how it taste in this consistency.
This soup sounds really delicious but I noticed that the sodium is very high for one serving, looking at the ingredients I can't figure out what would make that so ? Appreciate any input. I have to watch my sodium intake for health reasons.
I've never been big on raw kale, btu this use of it in sou looks divine! THe perfect comfort food for the cold weather!

This it’s such a beautiful presentation! Placing the ingredients in a slow cooker and using the hand blender is a technique that is new to me. I will give it a try. ☺️ The seeds and the drizzle of cream on top is brilliant 👍🏼 thanks! 💕 xo, Evelyn,
