    Judy Lyne's Note:

    After having this potato based kale soup at a local portuguese restaurant, I was able to recreate it with great results. My husband swears it's better than theirs and it remains a favorite in my recipe collection.

      A velvety, filling soup.....We used turkey broth, cooked kale from the freezer and hot italian sausage - definitely a repeater!!
