Kale/Leek Noodle Soup

5 stars from 1 rating of kale/leek Noodle soup

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: one crock pot serves six people 8 oz bowl of soup

Ingredients For Soup

  • bunch curly kale, stripped off stems
  • 2 small sized leeks(cut up the whole leeks), small dices and seared in butter
  • 1 small thin pork chop, thrown in whole
  • 2 tbls margarine or butter, melted in pan
  • 1/4 box pasta/spagettini, broken in 2 inch peices
  • 2 small potatoes, dised small
  • small sprig dill, thrown in crock pot whole
  • 3 tops garlic scapes, thrown in whole
  • pinch salt/pepper/ hot red pepper flakes, to your taste
  • 16 ounces turkey broth, or chicken whatever you have
  • 32 ounces water, pour in

Directions

  1. Cut the leeks into a 1/4 inch peices and strip leaves off of kale.Then, rinse the leeks and kale in a full sink of water to get rid of all the dirt. These vegetables tend to be a bit gritty.
  2. Heat two tablespoons of margain/butter in frying pan and sear the leeks , garlic scape heads,and pork chop.( Suzzycue was told to boil kale with a peice of pork so she did.) (She added butter because she liked it on spinach so thought why not on kale)
  3. Add 16 ounces of turkey broth and 32 ounces of water to crockpot and turn on high.
  4. Cut the 2 small potatoes in a small dice so they will cook all the way through. The starch from the potaoes and the pasta will thicken the soup without using milk.
  5. Scrape the leeks and porkchop with the butter into the crockpot as well as adding all the ingredients except the pasta. Here Suzzycue added a pinch of hot red pepper flakes/salt/pepper and the dill sprig. Cover the crock pot and leave it on high for 25 minutes.
  6. Break the pasta and add it ten minutes before the soup is done. The vegetables will still have a crunch and you can remove the dill sprig in one peice so no one will choke on it.

How To Make The Soup

Wash leeks and kale in a whole sink of water to allow the dirt to drop off into the sink. These vegetables tend to be really gritty.

Cabbage Rolls Make a Great Companion

This soup would be great as a side to any dish you are preparing for your family tonight, but if you are hard pressed for time serve it alongside Lazy Man's Best Cabbage Rolls, and you will be glad you did. This recipe is done from start to finish in one hour and ten minutes and is so simple your kids could put it together.

For those of you that would enjoy a fresh salad with this meal, Marinated Tomato & Basil Salad is also made with just a few ingredients. It takes only minutes to make, and it is best made the day before to meld the flavors together overnight. Making this salad ahead, the day before saves on time to make the soup.

Enjoy, and share with your friends! You won't be disappointed.

        Hi Michelle. that is the total cooking time, then add the pasta in the last ten minutes of the 25 minutes. You could put this together in your crockpot and leave it on low all day while you areat work. It would be great cooked this way also. Thanks for your input on my Kale and Leek Noodle soup:)

        @DeborahNeyens I freeze everything even mushrooms. Blanch them in the microwave for 3 minutes then ziplock bag to cool off then freeze. Good to go in soups and caseroles.

        I grew kale in my garden for the first time last year and it was so easy to grow. I definitely will grow it again so I'm pinning this recipe for future reference. Thanks!

        Thanks Dirt Farmer for commenting to this hub. Kale is under rated. This is the first year I have ate it and I really enjoyed it in this soup. I also love adding it to potato soup as well.

        Faith Reaper thankyou for being so strong and you are in my prayers. This soup is good for you and I love it with the hot red pepper flakes. The small sprig of dill and garlic scape heads in it really makes the taste pop. Thanks again for your comments.

        Wow, Suzzy - this looks amazing and delicous. Unfortunately for me, right now, I cannot eat Kale, as it is loaded with Vitamin K (you know - its is good for you) as I am on a blood thinner for the the large blood clots in both my lungs. Anything with Vitamin K counteracts the blood thinner medicine, and then my INR levels will get too low, and then . . . well, I could be absent the body and present with Jesus, and that is fine with me! But until February when they do another CT Scan, I am going to make a big crock pot of this! Thanks for the recipe. Well done dear one. In His Love, Faith Reaper
