Instructions
  1. In a heavy bottom soup pot heat up a lug of the olive oil over medium flame. Add the diced onion and saute until translucent. Add the carrot and zucchini and cook for about 5 minutes until they start to soften.
  2. Stir in the kale and sauté until wilted, about 5 minutes. Pour in 4 cups of the vegetable stock and bring the soup to a gentle simmer. Allow to cook for a few minutes then stir in the baby spinach and chopped cilantro. Turn off the flame and cover with a lid. Allow the soup to sit for a few minutes until the spinach has wilted.

  3. Using a hand held immersion blender puree the soup to your liking, adding more stock If you prefer a thinner consistency. Season to your taste with the sea salt an red pepper flakes.
  4. Serve with a drizzle of sour cream, sprinkled with the pumpkin seeds and garnished with the cilantro sprigs and chile pepper slices.
