Spicy kale soup with pumkin seeds


April 19, 2016

This recipe brings together the sometimes polar opposites; fantastic flavour and high nutrition. Kale is very much in vogue at the moment, and for good reason, it is highly nutritious.

  • Yields: Serves 4 to 5


1/2 cup raw pepitas

3 cups kale

2 1/2 cups water

3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 cup apple juice

1/2 cup mashed avocado

1 tbsp peeled and minced fresh ginger

1 tsp seeded and diced hot pepper

1 1/2 tsp sea salt, or to taste

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

pinch cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp chipotle chile powder

1 tbsp coconut or olive oil (optional)

2 tsp wheat-free tamari or other soy sauce, or to taste (optional)

1 tbsp minced fresh cilantro

1/4 cup seeded and minced red bell pepper, for garnish


1Place the pepitas in a small bowl with ample water to cover. Allow to sit for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse well.

2Place in a strong blender with all the remaining ingredients, except the cilantro and red bell pepper, and blend until very creamy.

3Transfer to a bowl, add the cilantro, and stir well. Top with the red bell pepper before serving.
