1Prepare all your ingredients.
1) finely chop onions
2) clean and slice leeks - green parts too
3) peel and chop potatoes
4) remove kale ribs, rough chop leaves
2Heat oil in soup pot over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, leek and 1 tsp salt. Stir frequently, reduce heat to low and cook until soft, about 8 minutes.
3Add broth, potatoes, and 1 tsp salt; simmer on medium-low for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth. (You can also use a food processor or countertop blender.)
4Turn heat to medium until soup is heated through, then add the kale. Add pepper and paprika, stir to combine.
Note: I add red pepper flakes to my soup. I love the extra heat.
