      I am Portuguese and this is truly delicious. Very "light" and tremendously good for you! I use the Kale when I make Caldo Verde! Thanks for posting this!

      Very, very interesting, and pretty darn good! I wondered if the oil was necessary, but I added it anyway for it to be as authentic as possible... well I DID have to use cabbage, because no wayyy I'd find kale in markets here! :-) I peppered this nicely and had a lovely, light, winter dinner with toasted bread and fruit. Thanks Dorothy!

      This was a delicious soup. I loved the way the garlic flavoured the potatoes. I had red cabbage to use up and am glad I came upon this recipe. We ended up adding salt to each bowl, I would probably add 1 or 2 tsp of salt to it next time. Thanks for the simple but yummy recipe!
