One of the most popular menu items at La Soupe in Cincinnati, this cleansing blend is flavored with garlic, ginger and horseradish, and is loaded with nearly 2 pounds of spinach, collards, kale and mustard greens. Try it with a squeeze of lemon.


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped white onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 -2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 pound mustard greens, stemmed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 pound collard greens, stemmed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 pound kale, stemmed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 32 - ounce carton vegetable stock
  • 1 6 - ounce package baby spinach
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Lemon wedges (optional)


  1. In a 5- to 6-quart pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and celery. Cook until soft and translucent, about 8 minutes. Add ginger, horseradish and garlic; cook 1 minute. Gradually add mustard greens, collard greens and kale. Cook until very soft and wilted, about 5 minutes. Add stock.
  2. Increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture just to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until everything is very soft, about 20 minutes. Stir spinach into soup until wilted. Working in batches, puree soup in a high-powered blender until very smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over each bowl, if desired.


  • Prep Tip: For the best results, make this soup in a high-powered blender. Budget models may struggle to fully puree the fibrous greens.
