Green Vegan Stew

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is the kind of soup to make when you find yourself with too many greens and need a vitamin-packed alternative to yet another salad. We ate the stew plain with crusty bread as well as served over rice, and enjoyed it both ways."

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion until soft, about 3 minutes. Pour in vegetable broth. Increase heat to high and bring broth to a boil. Add lentils. Reduce heat to medium and cook until soft, about 45 minutes.
  2. Stir kale, Swiss chard, and mustard greens into the broth; simmer until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in nutritional yeast, garlic powder, thyme, pepper, and salt. Let soup cool, about 10 minutes.
  3. Transfer soup to a blender; puree until smooth. Pour back into the pot and reheat, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • It would be interesting to try this recipe with various mixtures of greens. This was an interesting combination; I made it with fingers crossed, but it turned out great!
  • Substitute water for the vegetable broth if desired.
  • Use an immersion blender to puree the soup if preferred.

This was excellent. I added carrots and celery and I didn’t have collards so I only used kale and chard. I also did not good process it. Very much enjoyed by the whole family.

This recipe is excellent. I only used kale since I have so much in the garden. I like to have potatoes in kale soup, so added some. The flavor of this soup is really good.
