    NELady's Note:

    From Like Grandma Used To Make by Reader's Digest, c. 1996. This recipe differs from the original one in that turkey kielbasa has been substituted for Portuguese linguisa sausage and spinach replaces Portuguese cabbage.

      I forgot to add the spinach before this photo! I am so sorry! One of those crazy days! After we ate the soup I asked myself.. "Why is it called Caldo Verde? OMG!!! I forgot the spinach!" This made a fabulous soup! I did add some spinach to the leftovers and then reheated but then I forgot to take a photo! boy do I feel dumb! Thank you for a great and healthy recipe!
