Kale and Sweet Potato Soup

Velvety smooth and rich in texture, this soup will deceive you – all that flavour and not an ounce of cream! Naturally sweet and creamy sweet potatoes are the perfect base for this hearty fall soup. Nutritious kale adds a slight bitterness that perfectly balances the sweet potato.

Ingredients

1/2 tsp olive oil 2 mL
6 cups chopped Southern U.S. sweet onion 1.5 L
4 cups chopped Southern U.S. celery 1 L
1 cup Chopped Southern U.S. carrots 250 mL
1 cup each salt and fresh cracked pepper 250 mL
1 cup low sodium vegetable or chicken broth 1 L
4 cups peeled, cubed Southern U.S. sweet potatoes 250 mL
1 tbsp chopped kale 15 mL
1 tbsp chopped Southern U.S. kale 15 mL

Directions

In large saucepan, heat oil over medium high heat. Add onion, celery and carrot, salt and pepper. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Pour in broth and bring to boil. Add sweet potato and reduce heat to maintain a simmer. Cover and cook until sweet potatoes are tender and crisp, about 10 minutes. Stir in kale and cook 10 minutes more. Let cool slightly.

Use a ladle to transfer soup to a blender in batches, processing until smooth. Repeat with remaining soup. Transfer back to saucepan and thin with water if desired.

Serve warm sprinkled with wholegrain croutons.

Makes 6 servings.
