Potato Kale Soup

Posted by Stacey Mathews 5 Comments

With the harvest season really ramping up in the garden, I am always looking for recipes  to use as much of our fresh produce as possible. And since Fall has started making brief appearances around here, I decided to try out a soup in my new Vitamix!

I will often find a recipe online, and then totally change it to suite whatever beautiful veggies I have pulled out of the garden.  With something like this soup I am always just feeling my way through it, so I encourage you to shift this recipe in whatever way resonates with your taste buds!

The brilliant green color that the kale imparts on this soup makes it so much fun to serve at the table. The potatoes and cream create a classic potato soup taste, and it is a great way to integrate some more greens into your diet. Whether served as an appetizer or a main course, this will delight whomever you share it with.



Potato Kale Soup



1 cup Vegetable Stock

1 ½ cup Milk or Cream

1/3 cup chopped onion

3 Medium Potatoes Cooked (either baked or boiled, with or without the skin. Allow to cool slightly before putting them in the vitamix)

4 Medium Kale Leafs with the main rib removed (more or less depending on your love of kale)

3 Tablespoons of fresh chopped basil

Salt and Pepper to Taste


  1. Place all of your ingredients in your Vitamix, reserving one potato for later if you would like chunks in your finished soup.
  2. Select Variable 1, and slowly increase speed to Variable 10 and then High.
  3. Blend until heavy steam escapes from vented lid 4-5 minutes (if you started out with warm/hot potatoes this won’t take as long as starting out with cold ingredients, it may only take 2 minutes)
  4. Reduce speed to Variable 3 and remove lid plug. Drop in your reserved potato and blend for 5 to 10 seconds.
  5. Serve with any garnish that you would like.

      I LOVE my vitamix! It was my birthday present this year, and I look forward to learning all kinds of recipes to use it for. For me it is going to be a great tool to make even more of my food from scratch. I hope you get one of your own, they are awesome!

  2. I’m not a huge fan of kale, but this is actually quite appealing to me. I might have to try it :) Thanks for linking up to Healthy 2Day Wednesday!

      This is a great way to add some kale into your meals, for me the potato flavor was really the dominant taste sensation. I could tell my family was skeptical upon first sight, but everyone loved this soup! I hope you do try it out!
