Kale doesn’t appeal to everyone, bitter, too hard, too strong flavoured, reasons are tons.
This recipe will allow you to benefit from all the goodness in kale (high in fiber, in antioxidants Like Quercetin and Kaempferol, It is an Excellent Source of Vitamin C. Kale Can Help Lower Cholesterol, Which May Reduce The Risk of Heart Disease) while enjoying a warm and low calorie soup.
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 onion
- 1 apple
- 1 cup of lightly steamed kale leaves
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 cup of broth (or water for an even lower sodium version)
- 1/3 cup of flour
Sautee the onion and kale in coconut oil until a little tender but not totally transparent (so you don’t loose most vitamins due to the heating process) Add the apple and set it aside.
If you have a Vitamix or similar, you can add all the ingredients and use “soup” option and voila! dinner is ready
If you don’t own one transfer the liquids (milk, broth or water) and flour to a pan in low-medium heat and stir while adding the apple, kale and onion. Once is warm enough you may want to use a food processor or hand blender to puree and have a delicious “cream” kale soup.
I served it with a toast cut in cubes.
