CSA Special - Kale & Potato Soup

So, last week was our first week of our new CSA (community supported agriculture). A big shout out to Shari at Dancing Roots Farm for our wonderful veggies! We had a great haul this week - Salad Greens, radishes, spinach, pea greens, kale and a tomato plant. We made up a great salad with all the greens and radishes and shared that with our friends. I made kale and potato soup and it was excellent, so I thought I'd share that one here.

Serves 4

  • A couple of glugs of olive oil
  • 1 medium onion - chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic - diced or pressed
  • 5 cups liquid (I did 3 cups stock + 2 cups water, but you can do any combination you like)
  • 1.5 lbs organic potatoes - peeled & quartered
  • 1 bunch of kale sliced into strips
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. Heat the oil in a pot over medium-high heat
  2. Toss in the onion and cook until soft - about 6 minutes
  3. Stir in the garlic and cook another minute
  4. Pour in your liquid and bring to a boil
  5. Put your potatoes in and bring it back to a good simmer, but not a full boil
  6. Cook until the potatoes are fork tender (that means you can stick a fork in it pretty easily)
  7. Use a potato masher or other flattish kitchen utensil and smash all the potatoes up
  8. Add the Kale and simmer for another 5 minutes
  9. Salt & Pepper to taste
  10. Enjoy!
