Recipe: kale soup

Kale is one of the best leafy greens out there, packed with nutrition and flavour. In fact, here are 12 reasons why you should get more kale in your diet. I tend to buy a lot of it when it’s in season (and cheap!) and once I’ve made kale chips, green smoothies and kale salad, it’s time to move on to soup.

Recipe: Kale Soup
Recipe type: Soups
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • Dash extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or a sprig, if using fresh)
  • 1 litre chicken stock (find out how to make it here)
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and finely diced
  • 400g fresh kale
  • Sea salt & pepper to taste
  1. In a large pan, add the olive oil and onions and over a medium heat, fry for a few minutes until the onions start to soften.
  2. Before the onions start to colour, add in the garlic and thyme and stir on the heat for 1 - 2 minutes.
  3. Slowly pour the chicken stock into the pan and add in the diced sweet potatoes.
  4. Bring the pan to the boil, then reduce and allow to simmer for 15 minutes, or until the sweet potato is starting to come apart.
  5. Add in the fresh kale and cook for 3-4 minutes, until the kale is cooked and soft.
  6. Carefully transfer the mixture to a blender or food processer and blitz until the mixture is smooth throughout. You may need to do this in multiple batches depending on how powerful your blender is.
  7. Return to the pan over the heat.
  8. Season as required, then serve.

This can be made ahead and will keep in the fridge for a day or so, ready to be reheated. Alternatively make a big batch and store individual size portions in the freezer, ready to pull out on a day you don’t feel like cooking.

paleo recipe Griddled Asparagus with Pine Nuts-min

Recipe: Griddled Asparagus with Pine Nuts

An easy and effective way to make awesome asparagus! This is a great side dish with any dinner. It's easy to over cook – but take care because well cooked asparagus makes such a difference!


  • 500g asparagus spears
  • A handful of fresh parsley
  • A handful of fresh tarragon
  • A handful of pine nuts
  • Olive oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper

Asparagus How To:

1)     Sear the asparagus on a griddle at a medium low heat. You don’t need any oil, as this way they will crisp up far more.

2)     While these are cooking, finely chop the herbs, and mix together with 2tbsp olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

3)     Remove the asparagus from the heat when it is suitably chargrilled, normally after 7 – 8 minutes. Drizzle with the herb oil, then scatter the pine nuts.
