Abel & Cole's Roast Carrot & Feta Soup and Crispy Kale Recipe
Celebrate the flavours of spring with this hearty veggie soup.
- 1 onion
- 1 celery stick
- 500g carrots
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 2 garlic cloves
- 100g kale
- 1 lemon
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 30g feta
- A pinch of dried chilli flakes
Roast all the veg into an enamel roasting tin. The oven will caramelize the veg, enhancing its natural sweetness. A few pinches of spice, and into the oven it goes.
Now for the toppings, crispy roast kale is the veggie equivalent of a crouton. Add the kale into a large bowl and add in the garlic and lemon, massaging them in to coat the leaves and then roast for 10 minutes. Then heat the pumpkin seeds in a frying pan and listen to them pop.
When the veg is fully cooked, blitz them until smooth and creamy in a mixer. Serve up your seasonal soup in a bowl. Add the finishing touches; crispy kale, some tangy feta and the pumpkin seeds and sprinkle some chilli flakes for some extra heat.
