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.
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 Lady Lynne 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.
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!
