Servings: 4 people

Cook time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

200g kale, stems removed & leaves coarsely chopped

1/2 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, finely chopped

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1.5 litres vegetable stock

650g potatoes, chopped

450g broccoli, cut into florets & stems thinly sliced

60g fresh parsley

240g crème fraîche

1 tbsp lemon zest

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃.

  2. Rub 2 teaspoons of olive oil onto 50g of the kale. Put the leaves on a tray and bake for around 10 minutes, until crisp.

  3. In the meantime, heat the rest of the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic then cook for around 5 minutes, stirring regularly, until soft.

  4. Add the stock and potato, then bring the mixture to the boil. Turn down the heat and cover, then simmer for 5 minutes.

  5. Add the broccoli, cover, and simmer for another 6 minutes until the veg is tender.

  6. Add the parsley and leftover kale, then cook for 1 more minute until the kale has started to wilt.

  7. Take the soup off the heat, blend until smooth, then season to taste.

  8. To make the serving sauce, combine the crème fraîche and lemon zest in a separate bowl, and season to taste.

  9. Serve the soup while it’s hot, with a dollop of the crème fraîche mixture on top.
