I found this recipe in the Viva magazine, liked the flavour combo and very quickly and easily cooked it for a weekend lunch – very tasty but not too rich and “wintery” if you know what I mean. Not many ingredients but they all come together really well
You will get your five-plus a day with this lovely soup which has loads of greens plus the kumara packed in one bowl – perfect for a lunch or simple dinner with a salad and some crusty bread. Finish the soup with some grated parmesan
If you want to cook for a few, simply increase the quantities – too easy!
2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs butter
2 leeks, sliced
1 cup chopped kumara
1 packet kale – end stalks removed and roughly chopped
500ml chicken or vegetable stock
Salt and cracked pepper to taste
Squeeze of lemon to serve
Grated parmesan to serve – lots is good!
Your favourite crusty bread such as a nice baguette
