This soup is vibrant and flavorful, and packed full of greens. It will make you feel like a goddess. 

ingredients

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons of olive oil or butter
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (or more broth)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 bunches of greens (kale, swiss chard, collards, spinach, or other dark leafy green) roughly chopped
  • 1 small bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped 
  • 2 medium sized potatoes, chopped into one-inch cubes
  • 5-6 cups chicken (or vegetable) broth (I like using homemade bone broth here to add depth to the falvor)
  • 2-3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • salt and pepper, to taste

method

  1. In a large pot, caramelize the onions and garlic by adding them to a skillet with the olive oil (or butter), and cooking at low heat for 15- 20 minutes. 
  2. When the onions finish cooking, add in the white wine (or broth) and scrape the bottom to remove any brown bits. 
  3. Add in the greens, cilantro, potato, and broth. Bring mixture to a boil on medium heat, and then simmer for about 15-20 minutes, covered, until the potato is very tender. 
  4. With a blender, carefully puree the soup until smooth. Put soup back on heat. Season with a couple teaspoons of cayenne pepper and a good squeeze of lemon juice, plus a bit more salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
