I Eat Plants: Try this Creamy Kale Miso Soup at the John Jay Homestead Farm Market Saturday!


Readers of my blog JL goes Vegan know that I am a huge fan of kale. From smoothies to chips to stews to raw salads, kale can do no wrong. I think this Creamy Kale Miso Soup is a winner because it’s a nutritional powerhouse and it’s delicious. I hope you will join me Saturday, September 29, at the John Jay Homestead Farm Market where I will begin serving this tasty soup at 10:30 a.m. and at 11:00 a.m. I will hold a cooking demonstration to show you how simple it really is to make.  Hope to see you Saturday!

Creamy Kale Miso Soup {Vegan}
by JL Fields @ JLgoesVegan.com

Six ingredients + a saucepan + a blender = a delicious, super-healthy soup in 20 minutes!

Ingredients (Makes 8 cups)

  • 32 ounces (4 cups) low-sodium vegetable broth (low-sodium is very important!)
  • 1 cup yellow onion, diced coarsely
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped in big chunks
  • 1 block (14 ounces) soft tofu (NOT silken!), pressed and drained
  • 4 cups kale, loosely packed (I used Red Russian Kale, from Gaia’s Breath Farm)
  • 1/4 cup yellow miso
  • A few pieces of raw kale, for garnish


  • Bring vegetable stock, onion and garlic to a boil in a large saucepan.
  • Cube the pressed tofu, add it to the saucepan, and bring back to a boil.
  • Add kale (torn into large pieces), stir, cover and simmer on low for 5 minutes.
  • Remove saucepan from heat and stir in miso – it’s okay if it doesn’t all dissolve because you will soon be blending it.
  • Transfer soup from the saucepan to a high-speed blender (I used a Vitamix), cover tightly, and blend for 30 seconds to a minute, 3 cups at a time (you do not want to put more than 3 cups of hot liquid in a blender at one time – trust me!)
  • Spoon into a bowl and top with a few pieces of raw kale, as garnish.
  • Enjoy this hot, creamy soup!

  1. Hi Phyllis! Yes, I think an immersion blender can be suitable, you’ll just need to use it a bit longer because the kale is lightly cooked and therefore a bit tough. I hope you like it!
