Portuguese Caldo Verde – Soup with Potatoes, Kale, and Chorizo  by Pam on November 6, 2013

I was recently sent a wonderful cookbook called The Soupmaker’s Kitchen that is filled with delicious looking soups made from scratch. Every recipe has step by step photos that make them super easy to follow and make. I decided to make this soup because it looked comforting and delicious – perfect for the cold rainy day we were having. I adapted the recipe a bit to make it healthier by using a vegetarian substitute for the chorizo. I also used store bought broth because I didn’t have any homemade in the freezer. This soup turned out delicious! It was quite spicy so I didn’t serve it to my kids but they tasted it anyways and both said it was really good. I loved the chunks of potato and the texture of the kale in this healthy, flavorful, and delicious soup. My husband and I both really loved it and the leftovers were even better the next day. I look forward to making more soup recipes from this great cookbook!

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chorizo, removed from casing and cook, making sure to crumble the sausage. Side Note: If you use a vegetarian substitute, remove it from the casing and chop into small pieces. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until the onion is tender and the sausage is cooked. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth, potato chunks, and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.Simmer for 20 minutes then add the kale. Simmer for another 10-15 minutes then taste and re-season if needed. Ladle into bowls and serve with crusty bread. Enjoy.

Prep Time: 5 min.

2 cups of kale, chopped
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Directions:

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chorizo, removed from casing and cook, making sure to crumble the sausage. Side Note: If you use a vegetarian substitute, remove it from the casing and chop into small pieces. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until the onion is tender and the sausage is cooked.
