Kale Soup
Kale and Chickpeas vegetable soup

Dear friends

I have been engaged in some interesting projects and have not had time to create new dishes and at last, everything is now in place.

I have prepared this wonderful kale and chickpeas soup which, I hope, will warm your inside, delight your taste buds and fill your stomach.

(4)

Ingredients:

150g kale leaves (already washed, chopped and packed) in any supermarket

130g chickpeas in tin – water drained

150g sweet corn in tin – water drained

1 medium sized onion, peeled and chopped

2 carrots, peeled and cubed

2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

2 chicken stocks dissolved in 700ml of hot water

3 medium sized tomatoes peeled and chopped

A thumb-sized ginger – chopped

2tbsp vegetable oil

Grated Cheese for garnishing

Heat oil in pan then add onions, garlic, ginger on medium heat, stir until soft then add the cubed carrots and tomatoes and cook for another 5mins. Add the stock, turn up the heat and cook for another 5mins. By this time the carrots should be cooked. Now add the chickpeas and sweetcorn and simmer for another 5mins. Add the kale leaves and simmer for 8mins or until tender. Check seasoning. Remove from heat, allow to cool and liquidise. Serve in warmed individual soup bowls and garnish with grated cheese.

What a bowl packed full of nutrients and warmth.

Enjoy!!
