Recipe: Green Kicker Soup

One of the joys of owning a side-by-side fridge is the ridiculously long life span of veggies residing within this box of mouthwatering magic.

My wife and I tend to buy lots of veggies and then forget about them at times, but thanks to good ol’ George (Yes, we named our fridge. Our oven’s called Margaret, our microwave oven Odette.) making left-over soup is a breeze!

Green Kicker Soup


  • 1 kohlrabi, diced
  • 2 leeks, sliced
  • +/- 200g kale leaves (no stems)
  • 4 spring onions, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 litres vegetable/chicken/beef stock (I tend to go for chicken stock; gives every soup a more velvety feel)
  • 3 heaped tsp curry powder
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil


1. Heat the oil in a large casserole/saucepan.
2. Fry the spring onions, garlic and leeks for about 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly softened.
3. Add the kohlrabi, curry powder and kale. Stir until well combined.
4. Add the stock and bring to the boil.
5. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
6. Turn off the heat and blitz with a hand-held blender.

Behold, green goodness pre-simmer:

And post-blitz. Happy faces all around!
