    Kale and Spinach Soup


    Kale soup is one type of soup that is very uncommon to find in restaurant menu. I first tried kale when back in 2015 when I attended a community conference. The main focus of the conference was reaching out to families in the community, teaching them how to farm and grow small organic produce for consumption. Before then I have never heard of nor seen kale. The kale that was served was mixed with dried cranberry and other things, and it was served cold. I enjoyed it to the point that I asked the chef for the recipe. The chef told us that he was taught how to make all kinds of vegetables, including kale, when he visited Kenya that summer. The next day, I went to whole food store and purchase 8 bunches of kale, and I made the exact recipe that the chef gave me. Since then I have learned to make kale in over 15 different ways. I particularly love kale because unlike spinach, it does not go to sleep so fast on you. Okay let me explain that. Spinach tends to get too soggy very quickly, and it is difficult to control the texture when using it to make soup, but adding kale gives it a crunchy taste and makes it last a lot longer in soup. Kale itself without spinach tends to be too tough for some people to chew, but adding spinach gives it a perfect taste of softness. Below is a soup made with combined kale and spinach.



    Beef (quantity as desired)

    Dried stock fish (quantity as desired)

    7 fresh tomatoes

    4 bunches of kale

    2 cups of sliced spinach

    4 Habanero pepper

    1 1/2 cup diced red onion

    1 tbsp. curry

    1 tbsp minced ginger

    2 tbsp. coconut oil

    3 beef stocks

    salt to taste


    1. cut and clean the beef
    2. place beef in a pot, add salt to taste, 1/2 tbsp curry, 1/2 cup red onion, and 1 beef stock.
    3. Cook the meat for about 15 minutes and  add the dried stock fish, cook for another 20 minutes and set aside.
    4. Wash and slice all veggies, place kale in a separate pot, add 1/2 cup of onion, 1 beef stock, and steam for 2 minutes. Then add spinach and steam for another 1 minute.
    5. drain the steamed veggies and set aside. You can save the vegetable broth for later use or discard it.
    6. Blend tomato and Habanero pepper in a blender. Place a separate pot on a stove and pour 2 tbsp coconut oil onto the hot-pot, add the last half of onion and stir for about a minute, add ginger and stir for another 1 minute, add the blended tomato, cover the pot and cook for about 10 minutes.
    7. Pour the drained veggies onto the tomato mixture and stir until even distributed, then add the meat and stock fish mixture and cook for another 7 to 10 minutes.
    8. Allow soup to cool, serve on a bed of rice (rice is not keto compliant), with fufu (fufu can be keto complaint if made with veggies), or itself and enjoy!

    How to make Cauliflower Fufu


    Fufu is a type of food mostly known to west Africa Countries. Fufu is usually made from cassava, yam, cocoyam, and plantain. Fufu is eaten with different types of soup like egusi soup, okra soup, stew, bitter leaf soup, spinach soup, peanut soup, pepper soup, and various other types of soup. When you are on ketogenic diet you are limited to few low carb option. Those fufu items mentioned above are very high in carb, so in other to feel like you’re still enjoying fufu and soups without falling off track with the ketogenic diet (because we know how much people from those regions love their fufu), we substituted fufu ingredients with cauliflower, cabbage, egg plant, and some even use broccoli. I will be showing you how I used cauliflower below

    First, cut the cauliflower and blend with 1 cup of water


    Then pour the blended content in a piece of cut inside a bowl and squeeze to remove the water


    Then place the cauliflower in a pot and add 1 tbsp. of husk and mix together


    Next, set the pot on a stove with medium heat and continue to stir constantly to prevent burning and it will look like this

    Finally, place the fufu on a flat plate, wrap with plastic wrap, and mold as seen below and enjoy with your choice of soup.
