  • 2 cups baby kale (stems removed)
  • 1 cup chopped green pear
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped leek
  • 3 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onions ( only white portion)
  • 3 cups chopped baby bok choy
  • 1 tsp crushed black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt or as per taste


  • In a saucepan combine kale, pears, leek and vegetable stock and boil until leeks are tender. This may take 4-5 minutes.
  • Turn off the flame, let it cool for a while and blend it smooth.
  • In another sauce pan heat oil. Add garlic and cumin seeds.
  • As soon as the cumin seeds start to crackle add whites f green onion and Bok Choy. Saute for 2 minutes. (let the Bok Choy be crunchy but should be cooked properly).
  • Pour the blended soup into the pan and add salt and pepper.
  • Boil for couple of minutes and serve warm with your favorite bread/soup sticks.


  • This soup tastes best when served immediately. However, you may refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight glass container for about 4-5 days
  • This soup has a mild sweetness to it because of the inclusion of pear in it. 
  • To make it oil free - skip oil from the ingredients and combine all the ingredients (except salt and pepper) in a stock pot/ sauce pan and cook at medium - high flame until the vegetables are tender (about 5-7 minutes). Turn it off and blend it smooth in a blender or with an immersion blender. Season it with salt and pepper and serve. 
  • For instant pot option - turn it on at saute mode and heat oil in it. Add cumin seeds and garlic. Saute for 10 seconds and ass green onions. Saute again for 30 seconds and saute bok choy until they are cooked yet crunchy. Now, add rest of the ingredients and cancel the saute mode. Close the lid and seal the valve. Change the setting to soup mode or at manual high for 10 minutes. When done, release the pressure and open the lid. Blend it and adjust the seasoning.
