Since I am a first generation Portuguese, I feel "Qualified" to submit this recipe for Portuguese Kale Soup, requested by TeAntae Turner. My mother made this soup very often, and I have carried on the tradition with my own family. Linguica is the sausage of choice for most Portuguese cooks, but it is not available in many areas and keilbasa or chourico may be substituted.

Since I moved from California to Pa., I now have to wait for my annual trip home to stock up on my favorite sausage. I believe Igor would enjoy this soup too! I never measure when making soups, but will offer a recipe with amounts. Chourico is pronounced...shore--ree-so.

Pour oil in large pan, add onions and saute until translucent. Add garlic and saute another minute or two. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer, covered, until kale is tender and potatoes are cooked, but not mushy. Add salt to taste.

Serve with Cornbread, or a crusty French Bread. Posted to Kitmailbox Digest by ChefAlice@... on Apr 2, 1997
