Kale Soup

Scotty

"I merged the best of two family recipes, then fiddled a bit. Pretty easy. Very Spicy if you use hot Portuguese sausage. Both the sausage(chourico or linguica) and jarred peppers (Pimenta Moida) are available online if you don't have a Portuguese market in your town. I prefer linguica for flavoring soups because is has just a little more fat. If you are trying to limit the fat, stick with chourico."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. In a large soup pot, cook onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until soft. Mix in choirico, beans, and potatoes, and then add pork chops to the pot. Season with salt and pepper, and add enough water to the pan to cover all of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are tender.
  2. Once potatoes are tender, taste soup, add Pimenta Moida and more salt and pepper. Stir in kale and cabbage, and increase heat to gently boil. Kale only needs about 5 minutes. You may add some water if the soup got too thick, I like this soup on the brothy side.

Thank You, Scotty! It's easy to tell that you are a real New Bedford guy. This was wonderful. I've been trying to find this recipe ever since my favorite restaurant on the Cape closed. "Kadee's"...

This was really great! I don't have a Portuguese market near me, so I modified the recipe. I also added a few things for taste and nutritional value. Instead of the chourica, I used hot italian ...

I have been making this soup for years. It is very good. But if you want extra flavor go to the local grocery store and find Lipton cup of green pea soup (it is a dry package soup) This makes th...

This is just like my mom's Kale Soup. The only thing I changed was using Lima Beans instead of garbanzo beans. It was the way I remembered from growing up in Fairhaven. Thanks!

Sensacional! There must be some old-world mysticism at work here. The whole is far greater than the sum of all the parts. Fifteen minutes into cooking, my kitchen smelled of magic and wonder. Th...

I make a variation of this soup, and it is delicious! I will try adding the kidney beans and peppers to mine. Thanks!
