Pure and Simple Recipe of the Day: Kale and apple soup with walnuts

A soup full of nutritional goodness.

Ingredients:

  • 8 walnut halves, broken into pieces
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 2 red apples, unpeeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 2 coarsely grated carrots
  • 200g kale, roughly chopped
  • 500ml reduced-salt vegetable stock

Instructions:

  • In a dry, non-stick frying pan, cook the walnut pieces for 2-3 mins until toasted, turning frequently so they don’t burn. Take off the heat and allow to cool.
  • Place the onion, carrots, apples, vinegar and stock into a large saucepan. Bring it to the boil. Recude the heat and allow it to simmer for around 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the onion becomes translucent and the apples start to soften, add the kale and simmer for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Transfer contents to a blender and blend untill smooth.
  • Pour into bowls and top it off with the toasted walnuts.
