Kale Spinach Ginger Miso Soup. Vegan Glutenfree Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF


Its a green soup day! the best way I like Kale is soft curly Kale, steamed and them drenched in a tangy Ginger Miso sesame dressing. But all the massaging or steaming takes up some time. So instead of making a salad, I blended up the whole thing into a soup ;)
Some Kale, some spinach, ginger, miso and spices to taste and you get a soup you can eat as is, with croutons, make it thick as a dip and so much more. 

Add some cooked chickpeas or White beans or Quinoa or Mushrooms to make it more hearty. This was a side with spiced up Mung bean Sprouts the other day, so I didnt add any beans/peas.

Add some garam masala, a tomato, salt and garlic to the Kale and spinach puree and cook and add some baked tofu for an Indian Palak Paneer.

Random photography composition alert.



It is so interesting how our tastes have evolved over the past 2 years. I think my mom and Dad might not even recognize the taste of some usual Indian foods, as I have either fusion-ized them or edited them to be simpler. :) Of course this is not close to anything Indian, but the idea stems from curried Spinach or mustard leaves soup. I cant wait for Mom to visit and try Kale.

So we still have been looking for a larger home with a yard. And whenever we end up with decent options, my husbands location preference leads to indecision. He loves our current location so close to the Sculpture park and weekend long walks along the beaches with far off mountain views. I will miss this location too. All the activity around and our cozy house. But there arent any other areas which are this close to a gorgeous water body with mountain views. :( And the only options in Belltown and condos. We added the gorgeous Green Lake to our location preference. Lets see how that goes. Green lake is picking up some points lately because of some amazing vegan bakeries out there:)

Kale Spinach ginger Miso Soup
This soup if being shared at Ricki's wellness weekend, Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays, Healthy Vegan Fridays.

I remember almost a decade back, when I was anemic(as a non vegan), and was visiting Mom, she made me drink Beet juice everyday. She said it contained a whole lot of iron. Beets have about 10% iron. I think I should have just guzzled up some BlackStrap Molasses :)

  18. Richa - I discovered your blog about 2 weeks ago and have already made about 6 dishes! I love the flavor profiles - especially the curries and indian-spiced recipes. Whenever I get the notice of what will be in my organic grocery delivery for the following week, I look to your blog first to decide what to do with my goodies. I live in Seattle, too, so maybe I'll catch you at World Spice Merchants one day! Thanks for making the world a kinder, tastier place!
