Kale and Spinach Soup

Kale and Spinach are very nutritious, and this recipe suggestion is from Anne Aobadia at Diet Doctor site. It is for Vegan Style Kale and Spinach Soup ... she says "Is it possible to combine a vegan and keto life style? In the long run that isn't something we (Diet Doctor) recommend due to the difficulty of getting enough nutrients, like protein and B12. For single meals it works great though, as in this lovely green soup."

I know some of our readers are vegan, some vegetarian, some follow the LCHF lifestyle - some don't - food choices are for the individual. The low carb team do live the LCHF lifestyle.

A variety of recipe ideas are found within this blog, and not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

However, I hope you may enjoy this soup soon ... it's especially good if you may still be experiencing cooler and stormy weather, as some parts of the world are currently having.

Here are the ingredients :
Serves Four
(13 carbs per serving)
3¼ oz./ 90 g coconut oil
½ lb / 225 g kale
½ lb / 225 g fresh spinach
2 avocados
3 1⁄3 cups / 800 ml coconut milk or coconut cream
1 cup / 240 ml water
fresh mint or dried mint (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 lime, the juice

Fried kale
3¼ oz. / 90 g kale
2 chopped garlic cloves
1 oz. / 30 g coconut oil
½ teaspoon ground cardamom (green)
salt and pepper

If you don’t like coconut milk you can of course make this soup with heavy (double)  cream or full-fat sour cream, and butter instead of coconut oil. The soup will then be vegetarian, not vegan!

I'm so unadventurous when it comes to soup, I should definitely try some new things.

I haven't been very successful with kale so far Jan, I know how excellent it is for health so I may have to try your soup 😊

Kale but especially spinach features in our kitchen but it's for our smoothies, even with a lovely warming soup on offer I don't think I could get my lot to tuck in!
