Number of Servings: 2


    500 grams fresh kale
    40 grams butter
    1 tsp saffron threads
    1 packet of dried mushrooms (about 20 grams)
    2 carrots
    1 piece of celery root about the size of a large egg (60-70g)
    1 cup leeks, chopped

    1 pinch of fresh lemon peels, grated
    60g wheat flour
    2 tbsp oil or ghee
    1 tsp vegetable instant soup powder
    1 tbsp fresh herbs, finely chopped
    100 g creme fraiche (optional)


This recipe makes 2 servings according to the cookbook I originally got it from, but I find it makes 3 servings.

Instructions: melt the butter with the saffron, let cool. Let the mushrooms sit in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes until they get soft.
clean the kale, remove stems and cut into pieces. cut the other veggies and the onion into smaller pieces.

beat the saffron butter, add salt and pepper and mix in the eggs and lemon zest, after that the flour. Bring a lot of saltwater to a boil, use 2 teaspoons to cut off small chunks off the dough and throw them into the boiling water. Let this boil for a minute, then close the lid and turn down the heat, let it simmer for about 10 minutes.

In the meantime, heat the oil and stir fry the kale, the onion and the other veggies. Add the mushroom and the water they were soaking in, bring it to a boil. Add the vegetable soup powder. Cover the pot and let it cook slowly until the kale is done.

Stir in the creme fraiche (optional). Add salt and pepper to taste, serve with the saffron balls on top and sprinkle with fresh chopped herbs.
