7 Days of Kale- Day 7- Kale Miso Soup

23 Apr

Finally. Day 7. My last day of kale recipes.

A good friend told me 1 day of kale was too much. Ok, so not everyone is a fan of kale. Some people are meat and potato kind of people. That’s ok. But for those of you interested in exploring new tastes, new flavors and new ideas, I hope you enjoyed (survived) the 7 days of kale.

I modified the recipe instructions on the Cold Mountain Mellow White Miso.

Recipe

3 Tbs  Miso

3 cups Water

1/4 cup wakame seaweed

1/2 cup Kale roughly chopped

1/2 cup Shiitake mushrooms

2 scallions, diced

tofu, optional

Instructions:

In a small bowl, cut and soak wakame seaweed as package instruction explains.

In a medium pot, add miso and water on medium heat until miso dissolves.

Add kale and mushrooms, add simmer for 10 minutes.

Add mushrooms, simmer for another 3 minutes.

Add scallions as a garnish.

Serve and enjoy.

7 Days of Kale -Day 2- Kale and Bean Soup

18 Apr

Kale works really well in soups and stews. Make sure to chop the kale in to small pieces. I use a food processor to finely chop the kale before adding it to the soup. This recipe makes a large batch and freezes very well.

Recipe

2 Bunches of Kale, destemmed

1 sweet onion, diced

3 leeks (whites only), diced

3 large carrots, sliced

2 boxes (32 oz) veggie broth

1 can diced or stewed tomatoes

1 can small white beans, rinsed and drained

3-4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped

cayenne pepper to taste (optional)

In tall saucepan, saute onions in oil for 3 minutes, add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Add broth, kale, carrots and canned tomatoes. Cook until kale is tender, about 5 minutes. Add canned beans. Serve hot.
