    To quote Mrs Psi "that was the mutt's". We've been getting an organic veggie box every week and this week it contained Kale. That threw us a little. I made a couple of slight adjustments, swapped cannellini beans for a tin of black eyed beans and one tin of mixed (all I had to hand) and reduced the stock cubes from 6 to 4. Other than that we followed it as is and it is one of the tastiest vegetable soups we've eaten since we can remember. I put mine through the blender as I prefer a smoother soup but I'm told that it was equally "delish" chunky style. A most excellent soup.  -  23 Nov 2011

    I picked the last of the kale from the garden – there was a whole panful of the stuff, then I checked out this website and the vegetarian kale soup looked interesting, but as I always do, I made wholesale changes until my soup has only a passing resemblance to Donna’s. I wasn’t expecting it to be great as it had so much kale in it, but it has turned out to be delicious. I didn’t do much measuring, but here roughly is what I did: sweated a whole garlic bulb (chopped finely, of course) in oil, then added a chopped onion, followed by a great load of chopped kale (minus stems), filling most of the pan. Then added tin of chopped tomatoes, half a large potato (chopped), stock (a kettleful of boiling water and 3 chicken stock cubes – I didn’t have any vegetable stock cubes). That’s it. Simmered it all for less than 30 minutes, then used a blender till it was smooth. It turned out to be really tasty and it’s used up all that kale that I had. Thanks to Donna for inspiring me, even if I did do something almost entirely different! Greetings from Scotland.  -  28 May 2016
