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!

Derf, this soup is super tasty! The potatoes and cabbage go so well together and the garlic adds a very nice flavour, too! I really like how simple and easy this is to put together and how much flavour you get from such few ingredients. I chose savoy cabbage instead of kale, cause thats what I had on hand and I thought it added a great taste. Due to this substitution I had to cook the cabbage with the potatoes and pureed the whole soup witha hand-held blender at the end. LOVELY! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us! Ill certainly make it often again this autumn/winter. Made and reviewed as a recipenap for Veggie Swap #15 Octobre 09.

It has great potential. We thought it very bland, added garlic salt, onion powder more pepper and more salt. Thinking next time we will use chicken broth instead of water.

Very nice light soup. Good for a light supper. Just don't expect young children to go for the soup LOL.

Nice, basic recipe, but nothing special. Make sure that the potatoes are boiled well before mashing them, or the starch will make the soup gluey.
