    Nana Lee's Note:

    This is an authentic Portuguese Kale soup. I don't use the dried bans, I use canned canneloni instead. It saves time and I like them better than the red variety. The number of servings is a guess as the size of your bowl and appetite varies. Also whether you use this as a main dish or soup course.

      I have been making Kale soup for 56 years for my family and friends. I still use dried fava beans when available, and always beef shank bones for the broth which I simmer for about 1 /2 hour before adding other ingredients. This has been served at many a tail gate party before a foot ball game or when the boys were ice fishing...along with Portuguese rolls. .

      Really good recipe! The first time I ever had kale soup was at a little restaurant in Cape Cod and I loved it! Very hardy soup with the eans and potatoes, and the sausage gives it that spicy kick ! The kale reminds me alot of cabbage when its cooking. Perfect on a cold day !

      Dear Nana Lee: THANK YOU! THANK YOU for this outstanding recipe. I have never cooked kale or portuguese sausage before. What a fabulous introduction. You are right about watching the salt. Next time I will eliminate salt. I cannot wait for my husband to taste this. I am so happy I found this recipe at the beginning of the autumn season. Elaine Cape Cod
