You will need:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (or sub water)
  • 1 brown onion, chopped finely
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary, finely chopped
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 x 400g can cannellini beans, drained
  • 2 cups vegan chicken-style stock
  • 1 cup kale leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
To serve
  • 1 cup coconut cream or yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • Crusty bread
  • Lemon wedge (optional)


  • 1Add the oil and onion to a medium pot over high heat and sauté for 2 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and rosemary and sauté for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  • 2Add the potatoes and beans then sauté for 1 minute until they are covered in onion and garlic.
  • 3Stir in the stock and kale and cook for another 15 minutes.
  • 4Use a stick blender to blend half the soup. Alternatively, remove half the soup and blend in a stand blender until it reaches your desired consistency. Return the soup to the pot and stir through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 5Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with coconut cream and smoked paprika. Serve with crusty bread.

Tip: Squeeze a wedge of lemon over your bowl for a little zing -- as a bonus, the vitamin C in this citrus fruit helps your body absorb all the incredible nutrients packed into this veggie soup!
