Curly Kale soup

As well as making the kale crisps yesterday I made this Kale soup. Well it is supposed to be a superfood, and I was trying to eat healthily yesterday. That lasted until tea time. I made the mistake of blending the soup while it still had a bay leaf  in, the taste of bay was overpowering. Shame, as think it would have been a really nice soup otherwise. I googled kale soup to find a recipe, and improvised with the ingredients I had to hand.

Olive oil
100g Kale
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
300g potatoes, diced
1 litre of vegetable stock

Heat a tablespoon of oil in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Fry the onion and garlic until soft and golden. Add the potatoes for a couple of minutes. Reserve some of the Kale, and add the rest to the pan with the stock. Cook for about 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Then using a hand blender or a processor blend the soup until smooth. Season and add the remaining Kale just before serving.
