Curried potato and kale soup is a delicious and nutritious budget soup. With a beautiful creamy texture and a hint of curry, this filling soup will not leave you still feeling hungry.
I've always been a fan of thick pureed soups and this curried potato and kale soup is no exception.
I mean don't get me wrong, I love chunky vegetable soups like my Scottish Vegetable Soup and tomato based soups like my Mediterranean Vegetable Soup
But wouldn't you agree that scooping the remains of a thick, creamy pureed soup out of the bowl with a hunk of homemade bread is really satisfying?
The combination of the potatoes and kale go perfectly together here so it's not only an extremely satisfying soup but it's a mighty tasty and healthy one too.
With a huge amount of Vitamin C consumed from just one bowl you can be sure you're helping your body to protect itself from any colds coming your way and especially more so at this time of year.
Basically this simple soup came about because I had a bag of white potatoes to use up and the bag of kale was left over from making the recently published Scottish Vegetable Stew.
If there's one thing that does not happen in our house that's waste.
Food thrown away is not just food wasted but it my eyes its money wasted too and for a frugal Scottish person like myself that makes me pretty annoyed!
I'm always looking for creative ways to use up any leftover vegetables which means my other half and I make the most of our grocery budget making sure we save our money for the things that we both enjoy most in life - like our holidays.
If I'm not using up left over vegetables to create fantastic soup recipes like this, I'm using those vegetables in other ways such as in stir fries, casseroles or roasted veggies.
So, with Christmas around the corner let's all see if we can help reduce the massive amount of food waste in this world by being creative and letting nothing go to waste!

What a creative way to use those leftovers, Neil! And I'm right there with ya on the soup, too. I love a good chunky veggie soup, but I really love a thick and creamy soup...I just don't love the calories that often come along with that. This one really solves that problem, and it looks delicious! Perfect for cold winter days!
Soups like this will be set to continue for us for a while David as the temperature is set to drop further here, so as you say it's perfect (and needed) for cold winter days!
Hope you guys are feeling better. 🙂

Have you tried my Caldo Verde? Simlar ingredients overall, I wonder what you would think of it!
Well for a start Susie you've got Chorizo in that, so what's not to love?? Love love love Chorizo! Yep, I'd love that soup. Pinned!
