Curly KALE and MEATBALL Soup


Kale is a popular vegetable, a member of the cabbage family. There are many different types of kale. The leaves can be green or purple in color, and have either a smooth or curly shape. The most common type of kale is curly kale. Kale is very high in nutrients and very low in calories, making it one of the most nutrient dense foods. Important vitamins and minerals are found in kale. I have used curly kale in this delicious soup recipe.

2 White onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 tbsp Olive oil
250g Curly kale, roughly chopped
1200ml Chicken stock
4 tbsp Parmesan cheese grated

250g Minced Pork
1 clove of Garlic, minced
1 Egg
100g Flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

2 tbsp Olive oil for frying
Salt and black pepper

Serves 4


Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. add the onion, season well and cook until brown and caramelised. Meanwhile bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Cook the kale for about four minutes. Rinse well in cold water and drain.

For the meatballs, add the ingredients to a bowl, season with some salt and mix together very well. Roll the mixture between the palms of your hands to make marble sized balls. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and fry the meatballs for a few minutes until browned and cooked through.

When the onions are ready, add the chicken stock, kale and meatballs, heat through and season to taste with salt and black pepper.


Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle the cheese over each before serving. Enjoy......
