6 people 15 minutes 10 minutes


  • 2 - Bay Leaves
  • 2 - Carrots finely chopped
  • 250 g Celeriac finely chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 0.5 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 - Leeks thinly sliced
  • 0.5 - Lemon juice only
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 - Onion finely chopped
  • 2 - Potato cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp SuperValu Fresh Parsley finely chopped
  • 3 sprigs SuperValu Fresh Thyme
  • 70 g SuperValu Kale
  • 2 - SuperValu Parsnip cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2.5 litre Vegetable Stock or water


  1. Heat the oil in a family-sized pot set on a high heat. Add the carrots, onion, celeriac, salt and pepper and cook on a high heat, stirring regularly, for a couple of minutes. Add the leeks, parsnips, potatoes, garlic, thyme, bay leaves and cook for another few minutes, stirring regularly to prevent anything from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  2. Remove the tough stems in the centre of the kale and roughly chop the leaves into bite-sized pieces. Add the kale to the pot along with the stock and lemon juice. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down, cover with a lid and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, until the vegetables are soft.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat, add the parsley and blend until smooth using a stick blender. If the soup seems a little thick, add a drop of water to reach the desired consistency. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed.
