I loved this reciepe!! It was so good and very easy to make, however the only thing I changed was instead of boiling the potatoes in water I used 3 cans of chicken broth, one can of the low sodium low salt and then 2 cups of water, it seemed to give the soup more rich flavor and good color. Very good soup I will continue to make this for years!!
Most excellent soup! As with most soups this needs to sit overnight for best flavor. Linguicia is hard to find but worth the effort (usually in the smoke sausage section). I left the potatoes in small cubes. I simmered in the crockpot because I like the kale well done. This was a hit with our guests!
I loved this soup as a child. I tried it this way but I really wasn't very happy with the outcome. Here is some advice. I added 2 splashes of half and half cream and a handful of medium cheddar cheese. After that not only did my kids inhale it they asked me for more the next day!!
Great soup. A nice blend of rich and creamy from the potato base, exciting spicy bites of sausage (we used the spicy kind)and fresh tasting healthy kale in every bite. At first I thought there was no way all that kale would mix in but it did just fine.
This tasted like I remember caldo verde when I was very young and living in Portugal. When my Daughter and her cousins were three I could get them to eat it every week by calling it dinosaur soup. If you've ever seen Little Foot and his friends enthusiastically eating tree tops you will understand. This worked great until they turned 7 years old and and they came face to face with the harsh reality of the real world.
I have had this soup growing up...as I am Portuguese myself. My parents though, don't like anything that looks white...so my mom always boiled the potatoes with 10-15 mini carrots. The snack ones that are already peeled. It gives this soup some color and extra vitamins...give it a try. Also I read some of the comments and some said this is bland...no matter what recipe you try, you always have to add the amount of salt and pepper to YOUR taste. Everyone is different. Great traditional Portuguese recipe! TY for posting it.
