Oh, meu deus, teh noms!
I found the recipe for "Portuguese Kale Soup" in Myra Goodman's Food to Live By: The Earthbound Farm Organic Cookbook (Workman Publishing, 2006) and this one recipe justifies the entire cost of the cookbook. Seriously, this soup is wonderful -- a hearty combination of fresh kale, sausage, and beans in a rich broth. Easy to put together and good for you! (Even The Husband liked it and he is not that keen on foods that "taste 'good for you.'")
- I used a combination of low-sodium chicken and vegetable broths for the base.
- Substituted mild chicken sausage for the chorizo.
- I did not peel my fingerlings.
- Because I was using baby kale, I saw no reason to remove any stems, but just rolled handfuls of the leaves up into cigars and sliced them thin.
