The thick, hearty soup calls for chorizo, a garlicky pork sausage that is available in most grocery stores, but you can also substitute linguica, a Portuguese sausage. DH and I have been going to a little place called Cafe Rio for years. About the only thing we ever order there is Portuguese kale soup. I have tried to duplicate the recipe for several years and this is as close as it gets.

Portuguese(kale)soup instructions

  1. In large stockpot fry up the two meats (browned all over) about 15-20 minutes..
  2. Once meats are cooked add one can of broth, this helps to make the broth..
  3. Add the potato, carrots, cabbage, cook until tender..
  4. Add salt, pepper, garlic and second can of broth, if there isn't enough liquid, that's when you would add your bouillions and water. Don't water down to much..
  5. Once veggies are tender add kidney beans and kale. Continue to cook on low heat. The longer it simmers the better the flavor..
  6. I can't put any real time frames in this recipe and there will be plenty of leftovers to freeze for future meals..
  7. Serve hot with fresh bread for dipping into the broth. Enjoy!.

The linguica sausage is a must. This is a very flavorful soup that is a comfort food for my family. Her mother had passed it on to her. This soup is easily stretched to make more servings. The Chorizo gives the broth a good base for adding another can of beans or more pasta or a little water.
