Caldo Verde

This soup is a Portuguese favourite, and a great use of kale. Enjoy it with a thick slice of your favourite bread!

Just a note of my slightly different order of things... I actually fry the chorizo/sausage and use some of that fat to then continue with the process, it adds lot more flavour and as someone mentioned I prefer to use chicken/vegetable broth! Also, I never blend the potatoes for this soup, rather mash them so I end up with some pieces rather than just a creamy soup base! I just love Caldo Verde, one of my all time favourites!

Very good, not quite like my mother in law's, but very good. I did switch the liguica for chorico and more than doubled the amount, but thats how I like it.

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.

I substituted chorizo for the linguica and added a can of hominy. The kids, who will rarely eat anything green, loved it!

Excellent. Used smoked Polish sausage, instead of linguica, which I'll be sure to try next time. Still turned out wonderfully. Thanks.

I thought the soup came out okay, but a little more bland than other kale soups I had before. Perhaps I should've substituted chourico for linguica. Felicia
