Winter Greens Soup


Prep time: 
10 minutes
Cooking time: 
30 minutes


Whatever greens you have around, put them in this soup. It will be yummy and ensure no veggie gets left behind.


  • 2 litres stock of your choice, beef broth is recommended
  • 250g frozen peas
  • 150g finely sliced winter greens, such as kale, cabbage, chard, beet tops, endive, stir-fry mix, etc.
  • 25g parsley
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 2 green chillies, seeded (optional), chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • Juice of 2 lemons


  1. Bring the stock to the boil in a large pot. Add peas, all the greens, parsley, spring onion, chilli and garlic to the pot. Let it cook for 5-10min until the greens look wilted, then blend the soup until smooth. An immersion blender works best for this, and be sure to take the pot off of direct heat before you blend. If you use a traditional blender, work in batches and take care with hot liquid.
  2. Back in the pot, bring soup to the boil once more, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste and add lemon juice. Divide soup among bowls and serve. Works well scattered with kale chips on top.
