Kale and Potato Soup {recipe}


I found a recipe for Kale Mashed Potato here! I changed the recipe a little and made it into a soup. We had last night for our Meatless Monday! Yumm...

3 baking potatoes, peeled and sliced
sea salt
4 tablespoons coconut oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch kale, large stems stripped and discarded, leaves chopped
1/2+ cup warm milk or cream
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, for garnish (opt)

Put the potatoes in a large pot and cover with water or chicken broth. Add a pinch of salt (ommit if using chicken broth), two sprigs of fresh parsley and two bay leaves . Bring the water to a boil and continue boiling for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Discard the parsley and bay leaves.

Heat two tablespoons of coconut oil in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, chopped kale, a big pinch of salt, and saute just until tender - about a minute. Set aside.

Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or fork. For a creamier consistency, blend  half  of thye potatoes. Add the milk (or cream) a few big splashes at a time.  Season with salt and pepper.

Dump the kale on top of the potatoes and give a quick stir.  Sprinkle with  scallions, Parmesan cheese, and shallots.

•Use mashed white beans in place of the mashed potatoes.
•Add some sauteed or baked mushrooms (chopped).
