Caldo Verde Soup

Caldo Verde Soup

For an experiment, I randomly bought some vegetables and then had a look around for a soup recipe that used them.  The vegetable I bought was some lovely dark kale, which I decided to make into the Portugese soup called Caldo Verde.  I had some chorizo sausage that Mrs Soup brought back from a work trip to Belgium of all places and some stock that I made from last Sunday's roast chicken left-overs, so this soup was rather economical, and also very tasty

Ingredients

  • 2 Medium Onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 150g Chorizo
  • 4 Large Potatoes (a floury variety works best)
  • 1.5l Chicken Stock
  • 250g Kale (I used cavolo nero, but any dark kale, or cabbage will do)
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • Seasoning
  • Sweet Paprika
