  1. Soak beans in twice their volume of water 8 hours or overnight.
  2. In a large pot, place drained beans, chorizo, soup bones and 1 litre water (or more as needed to cover). Cook over medium heat until beans are just beginning to be tender, 1 hour.
  3. Stir in cabbage, kale, potatoes and enough hot water to cover. Cook until potatoes are tender, 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.


Beef soup bones can be purchased from your local butchers. You may need to pre-order them.
