Yesterday afternoon, I made this Warm







I received some fresh stalks of curly kale ( boerenkool in Dutch ) from our friends’ allotment. 😉 This is a spiced up filling good-for-you soup filled with vegan gluten-free goodness! It is more a meal then a normal soup! I didn’t mix the soup! Enjoy! 🙂 You will love it too!


Recipe: For a whole lot of soup


155 gr cut up, peeled carrot rounds ( 1 heaped cup )

45 gr red long sweet paprika, deseeded & cut up ( 1/2 cup )

42 gr red onion, peeled & finely cut up ( 1/3 cup )

2 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely cut up

120 gr peeled cut up sweet potato (1 cup )

185 gr of cooked, rinsed pinto beans ( less than 1/4 cup )

1200 ml hot vegan gluten-free stock ( less than 5 cups )

coconut oil to fry your veggies in

1 teaspoon smoked spicy smoked paprika

2 teaspoons tomato concentrate

500 ml tomato passata, no seeds ( 2 cups )

2 stalks of curly kale, stalks removed, well-washed, spun dry, green parts cut up ( 3 cups, really pushed into the cups )

30 grins of finely milled black pepper

10 grins of grinned Himalayan pink salt


1. Take a large soup cooking pot & add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Let it melt & heat up on medium-high. When hot, add cut up red onion, garlic & carrots. Add 1/2 teaspoon of smoked spicy paprika & fry until the veggies are nearly tender. Stir often. Now, add chunks of sweet potato. Add some more coconut oil, if you need to. Fry for a few more minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon of smoked spicy paprika & add tomato concentrate. Fry for a few more minutes. Now, pour your tomato passata all over your fried veggies. Add hot stock & beans & bring to the boil. Boil for maximum 5 minutes or boil until your veggies are just cooked. You must taste the tomato & the spicyness. I added 30 grins of finely milled black pepper & 10 grins of finely milled pink Himalayan salt. Finally, add your chopped curly kale & boil for about 1 minute or 2.

2. Enjoy instantly with a loved one! This is a warm soothing nourishing good-for-you soup! It really fills you up too! xxx
