Potato Kale Soup (Vegan, Gluten-free)

If you want to typically turn your nose up at kale then this is the soup for you. This Potato Kale Soup is easy and delicious. Using frozen, chopped kale is part of the secret that makes it so good (and easy).

I’m including instructions for making this soup on the stove, in the Crock Pot AND in the Instant Pot!

Potato Kale Soup Vegan and Gluten-Free

Potato Kale Soup


  • 3 lbs of potatoes, chopped into bite-sized pieces (peeling is optional)
  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 3 ribs celery, sliced
  • 1 10 oz bag of frozen kale
  • 1/3 cup dry veggie broth mix (or bullion)
  • Enough water to cover everything

Note: This soup can be made on the stove, in the Crock Pot or in the Instant Pot.


1. Place all of the veggies into the pot. Sprinkle in Dry Veggie Broth Mix or use your favorite broth or bullion.

2. Cover with water and give it a good stir.

3. Cook covered.

Stove Top version: Cook over medium heat for about 30 minute. The time will vary depending on how large the veggies are.

Crock Pot version: Cook on low for 7 hours or high for 4 hours.

Instant Pot version: Press the SOUPĀ button, you can choose either quick release or allow the pressure to come down slowly.


This would be great as a starter leading up to a meal but we usually just eat it on it’s own. If you are a baker I recommend making a nice crusty bread to go with it.

This may be the easiest soup you’ll ever make. There is only one measurement involved and a little cutting. Everyone in my family loved it. This is my favorite way to eat kale.

  1. This sounds delicious. Going to buy some kale today and make this tomorrow. Thanks. By the way….I love your recipe for the dry mix to make broth with…It is so easy to make and tastes delicious.

    • Kathleen you will fall in love with this soup!

      • Soup is absolutely delicious…and so easy….just amazing. I gave some to my neighbor and she loved it too. Thanks for the recipe .. gosh I am glad you are
        back….so to speak..:) BTW I used the stove top method…yum.

        • Kathleen, I’m so happy that you and your neighbor loved it! You know me, I’m all about easy and delicious recipes. I’ve got more coming up!

  2. I cannot find frozen kale. Tried TraderJoes and Sprouts. I have fresh, how much do you think I should use? Thanks!

  3. Hi! I’m making this tonight; however, I only have frozen chopped spinach. Does that work just as well? Thanks for the recipe! Can’t wait to try it!

  4. How long in the instant pot with soup button? 5 minutes?

    • I believe the soup button will cook for 30 minutes on high pressure. You could cook it for less time but in this soup I like everything to fall apart. It gets creamy if you stir.

  5. Do you use less water int he instant pot?

  6. How would you make this with vegetable broth? How many cups?

    • HI Amber,
      If you use vegetable broth just omit the Dry Veggie Broth Mix and use 6-8 cups of veggie broth. Just make sure it covers the veggies in the pan.

  7. How much does this make?

  8. Diana Petrilli says:

    I have made this soup many times and all that have tasted it LOVED it! It is my go-to and I thank you so much for this recipe and for the dry broth mix. Perfect!

  9. Delicious! I made this with kale from my garden and Better Than Bullion. This recipe is a keeper!
