Kale and Cabbage Brose
Brose is a soup that is thickened with toasted rolled oats. This is a very savory soup that is fabulous for a cold winter warm up. Stocked with lots of healthy vegetables, it is a great way to add some extra greens to your diet.
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp cooking oil
2 cups green cabbage, coarsely shredded
4 cups kale, washed, stems removed and shredded
2 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup ham or back bacon, finely diced (optional)
1 quart chicken or veggie stock
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the broiler and toast the oatmeal in a shallow pan until golden brown, stirring often and keeping a close eye on it. Remove from heat and let cool.

Preheat oil in a medium pot, at medium high heat. Add cabbage and onion. Stir fry until the vegetables are beginning to become translucent. Add the chopped potatoes. Stir for 2 or 3 minutes more. Pour in stock. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 mins. Remove lid and add the kale. Simmer for a further 5 minutes or until the kale is tender.

Bring the soup to a full boil again, add nutmeg and ham or back bacon, then gently sprinkle in the oatmeal. Reduce heat and stir constantly for 3 to 5 minutes. Taste soup and add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

The soup is nice and chunky as it is, if a finer soup is desired you can use an immersion blender to chop the ingredients further. This makes a lovely emerald coloured soup that is thick and delicious.

Serves 6 to 8 with fresh baked bread or biscuits
