Spinach Kale Soup
This dead simple soup is filled with iron, good vitamins and antioxidants. It is also really delicious and perfect on a cold and rainy day. The tahini and lemon dressed chickpeas give the soup an extra twist, but they are actually good as a side dish to just about anything.


Spinach & Kale Soup with Tahini Dressed Chickpeas
Serves 3-4 persons

  • 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • a pinch of dried chili flakes
  • 500 g fresh spinach or thawed frozen, coarsely chopped
  • 300 g fresh kale or thawed frozen, stem removed and finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 4 cups (1 liter) water or vegetable broth
  • sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Tahini Dressed Chickpeas

  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 organic lemon, juice
  • 1 small handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • around 2 cups (600 g) cooked chickpeas/garbanzo beans


Preparing the soup: Heat oil in large saucepan. Add onion, garlic and chili, lower the heat and let stir for a couple of minutes or until softened. Stir occasionally. Stir in spinach, kale and nutmeg and gently cook for 1 minute. Then add water or broth and cook for 20 more minutes until the spinach and kale has completely wilted down. Season to taste. Serve as it is or blend it silky smooth, both ways are delicious.

Preparing the Chickpeas: Whisk tahini, oil and lemon juice together in a mixing bowl. Add parsley, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Add the chickpeas and mix it all up with your hands, make sure every single chickpea is coated.

Serving: Serve the soup in bowls with a dollop of yogurt and a couple of spoonfuls of Tahini Dressed Chickpeas.
