Today a friend supplied me with plenty of turnips, rutabaga and kale so with the temperatures out beginning to cool down a bit I thought a hot soup could be in order. Kale is one of these food ingredients which go well with an assortment of meals especially those which originate around the Mediterranean or in Northern Europe. Additionally it is an excellent product to consume fish. With my newly acquired kale, I decided to cook up a pot of the delightful kale soup with added Potatoes, other veggies and Spanish sausage. The following recipe will take a little over one hour to make and will feed four people. Visit this web-site for more recipes!
1 pound of Spanish Chorizo chopped into thin 1/8 inch slices
Preparation of soup
Put the sliced Chorizo sausage to the pot and cook it until it seems cooked. This should take approximately two minutes. Add the minced garlic and the cubes of potatoes, along with the water. Bring the mixture to a rapid boil and cooking for an additional 2 minutes. Add all the remaining spices at this time. Finally, add the kale while stirring constantly for slightly over 2 minutes.
It is now time to stir in the bullion cubes and bring the mixture to a constant boil. Reduce the heat and cover while simmering for a single hour. Season the soup with black pepper and “Jane’s” Crazy Salt. Finally, stir in the diced tomatoes and cook the soup uncovered for an additional 15 minutes.
This spice provides not only salt but additional spices also. Taste your soup after you have added the bullion cubes and the”Jane’s Crazy Salt. If it still needs salt you can add some kosher salt as required. A excellent change to this recipe is to add some white beans to it however since I usual give extra food to my son, I left out the beans since he does not care for them. Finding a quality Chorizo here in America might prove challenging so that you may need to find a good Spanish grocery store.
This soup is very much like a Portuguese soup known as”Caldo Verde”. The significant difference is that the Portuguese soup uses no tomato and contains fewer vegetables in it. It may also be made with almost any type of spicy sausage. In addition, in the Portuguese soup that the potatoes are slightly mashed up with only traces of potato chunks for texture type of like a potato soup. If you try this recipe I hope you enjoy it.
