Kale soup

I made this soup for lunch at work today with just a few ingredients and a good blender. Super easy, ridiculously healthy and pretty fricken satisfying on a cold winters day too.

Stir continuously and keep tasting until it’s warm/hot but not so hot that you’re actually cooking the vegetables. About 3 minutes on low.

If I was at home I would have sprinkled sunflower and sesame seeds on top to make it look prettier, but gotta make due with what you have! This soup is really filling and gives you a serious zap of energy 🙂

Update: made this again for lunch with a few good modifications. Sautéed onion and garlic for a few minutes, and two chopped mushrooms, 1/2 chopped tomato and chopped broccoli stems. Lightly sauté before adding blended veg. Makes for a better texture. I added some coconut milk and a Tablespoon of miso aswell.
