And a delicious invention it was! Normally in spinach soups people add potato for some body but the only body and thickness in this lovely soup comes from the huge amount of leaves blended up.
Green Soup - Serves 2 reheats well
150g, 5oz Smoked bacon, chopped
1 Onion, finely chopped
200ml, 7 fl oz Vegetable stock
80g, 2.5oz Baby kale (or normal kale with any stalks removed)
180g, 6oz Baby spinach
Fry the bacon in a sauce pan in its own fat until the fat is starting to run, add the chopped onion and fry gently until the bacon is well cooked and the onion soft.
Add the stock and bring to the boil, then add the kale, (if using large leaf kale not baby kale, boil for a minute or two, if not, continue), then add the spinach and put on a lid. When the majority of the leaves are wilted, pour into a blender and blend until you have a fine, thick soup.
