It’s cold and all I want to eat is soup, soup, and more soup.  This anise flavored soup is a Vegan, fun, healthy twist on potato soup.  Plus, it looks really pretty when it’s all put together.  Enjoy!

Kale, Potato, Pea and Anise Soup

2 T. Olive Oil

1 Onion, diced

3-4 Carrots, sliced

8 Ounces Potatoes, cubed

2 t Anise Seeds

6 Cups Vegetable Broth (I love Rapunzel Vegan Sea Salt Bouillon Cubes)

1 Cup Peas

1 Bunch Kale, deveined and torn

Salt and Pepper to Taste

In a medium to large stock pot, over medium high heat, sweat onion until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add carrots, potatoes, and anise seeds. Stir for 1 minute.

Add broth , increase heat to high, and bring to boil.  Leave boiling until potatoes are cooked.  Test with a fork.

Using an immersion blender, blend ingredients together briefly, leaving  a thick, chunky texture.

Reduce heat to simmer.  Add kale and peas and simmer for 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper and serve!
