Pureed Kale Soup


This attractive soup is a great way to get some more super nutritious kale into your diet.  The addition of a small amount of sugar helps tone down kale’s natural bitterness.

Pureed Kale Soup


  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 bunches kale, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup cream (optional for vegan preparation)
  • Ground nutmeg
  • Salt to taste


  1. Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil in a large soup pot until the onion just begins to brown.
  2. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Add the kale and sugar, reduce heat to simmer, and cook until kale is tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer the soup to a large blender, add cream, and process until smooth.
  5. Return soup to pot, heat until thoroughly warmed, add a pinch or two of ground nutmeg, season to taste, and serve.
