Sweet Potato Kale Soup

by on January 15, 2013


  • 4 cups of vegetable broth (homemade recipe below)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1.5 pounds of sweet potatoes
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 large bunch of kale
  • Pinch Black pepper
  • Pinch Cayenne pepper


  1. Peel and cut sweet potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Mince garlic. Wash and chop the kale into 1 inch pieces. Steams are options.
  2. Add broth, water, garlic, cayenne and sweet potatoes to a large saucepan. Over high heat bring to a boil. Once at a boil, reduce to low heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes (or until the sweet potatoes are tender).
  3. Using a potato masher or thick whisk, mash the sweet potatoes, this will thicken the broth. If you want a thinner soup, only wash ½ of the sweet potatoes. Leave broth on a low temperature.
  4. Add the kale to broth and completely cover the pieces by pushing the kale to the bottom of the pot. Simmer on low for 15-20 minutes or until all of the kale is dark green and soft in appearance.
  5. Season with pepper, or any additional spices.
    *I love spicy soups, so I usually add additional chilli peppers!
  6. Serve hot with a protein of your choice.
