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
