Equipment

  • Blender*
  • Immersion blender*

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 2 medium (320 g) potatoes diced
  • 1 medium (120 g) carrot chopped
  • 2 (60 g) celery stalks with greens, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried marjoram
  • 1/3 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 4-5 cups (1100 ml) vegetable broth or water
  • 2 bay leaves (optional)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Three 14 oz cans white beans (about 4 cups), rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) coconut milk canned
  • 1/2 to 1 cup kale chopped (optional)
  • Fresh herbs to garnish

Instructions

  • Watch the video (scroll down a bit) for easy visual instructions.
  • Chop the potatoes, celery, carrot and mince the garlic.
  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat and add the garlic, all veggies, potatoes, and spices (onion powder, oregano, marjoram, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper). Saute for about one minute.
  • Pour in the vegetable broth (or water) and bring the soup to a boil. Add the bay leaves (optional).
  • Let the soup simmer for about 10 minutes, then add the white beans and coconut milk. Simmer for a further 5-10 minutes.
  • Pour a part of the soup (e.g. half of it) to a different pot. Take out the bay leaves (if you used them).
  • Blend this part using an immersion blender until it's smooth. You can also blend the soup in a regular blender. Make sure to work in batches and not to overfill the blender.
  • Pour the blended soup back to the large pot and stir to combine. If you want to have an even thicker soup/chowder, you can blend all the soup.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning. Add more salt/pepper to taste and red pepper flakes to add more heat.
  • Garnish with fresh herbs (e.g. parsley), and enjoy. Serve with bread or toast.
