Autumn Harvest Creamy Vegetarian Kale Soup


This delightful autumn soup is creamy, cheesy, and full of flavor thanks to kale, carrots, bouillon, and butter.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cube vegetable bouillon
  • 3 small carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 small potatoes, cubed, or more to taste
  • 1 large bunch kale, chopped
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 ½ cups shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese


  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; saute onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
