Kale and Potato Soup
Sauté a chopped onion in olive oil. Add some chopped ham. One liter of chicken stock, two yellow potatoes diced and one bunch of kale chopped. Pepper but no extra salt as the ham and stock are already salty. Simmer 1/2 hour then mash with a potato masher. Put 1/4 cup flour in a 2 cup glass measure. Whisk in some heavy cream until flour is incorporated then fill measure with heavy cream. Gradually stir cream mix into simmering soup. Allow to bubble for about 5 minutes, stirring all the while, to cook the raw flour.
Serve with fresh ground pepper and thick yogurt.
