Unbelievably Good - Beetroot and Kale Soup (with Kale and Almond Crumble)

Unbelievably Good - Beetroot and Kale Soup (with Kale and Almond Crumble)

My veg box this week included beetroot and curly kale. I love beetroot soup (especially good Borscht) but my cookery skills are quite limited.

I searched online for a recipe and found this one by Ren Behan.


I was blown away by it. It was totally delicious, especially with the added crumble. I simply had to share it here. Please try it and enjoy :)

I estimate it contains about 120 kCal per 300g serving.


Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 25 mins

Total time: 35 mins

A blended, beetroot and kale soup, topped with an optional kale and almond crumble


•6 medium beetroots, peeled, halved

•3 carrots, peeled, halved

•1 red onion, peeled, chopped

•Half a stick of celery

•500ml/16½fl oz stock (chicken or vegetable)

•A large handful of fresh kale

•For the kale and almond crumble

•50g whole almonds

•A large handful of fresh kale


1.Add the beetroot, carrots, onion and celery and stock to a large pan. Bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for twenty minutes, or until the beetroot is tender.

2.Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

3.Add a large handful of fresh kale, cook for five minutes.

4.Leave the soup to cool slightly, then carefully transfer to a power blender, or whizz with a stick blender until the soup is very smooth.

5.To make the kale and almond crumble, place the whole almonds and kale (make sure it is very dry) into your (clean) power blender or food processor, blitz until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

6.Serve the soup, sprinkled with some of the kale and almond crumble.
