Portuguese Kale Soup

Serves 6 to 8

Kale Soup
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 large Portuguese yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 10 ounces chouriço (chorizo), diced
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 8 cups cold water
  • 1 pound kale or collard greens, cut into very fine julienne
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until they are transparent. Add the garlic and half the chouriço and cook for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes, cover everything with the water, bring to a simmer and lower the heat, simmering until the potatoes are almost done, about 15 minutes.
  • When the soup is cool enough to handle, purée it in the food processor and return to the pot, and add the greens, bring everything back to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper, ladle into bowls and decorate on top with the remaining cubes of chouriço.
