Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Saute sausage slices in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer sausage to a plate, leaving any fat in the skillet.

  • Add olive oil to the skillet and heat oil over medium heat; stir in onions. Cook and stir until the onions begin to brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Return sausage to the pot and add chicken broth, potatoes, and pepper; bring to a boil. Add kale and cannellini beans, reduce heat slightly, and simmer until sausage is cooked through and potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Season with salt.

Cook's Note:

Portuguese linguica sausage can be substituted with chourico (Portuguese smoked pork sausage) or any garlic-paprika sausage. Linguica and chourico are smoked and are purchased cooked. When substituting, be sure that the sausage is cooked prior to use.
