      Hello from Portugal, well being Portuguese I make (caldo verde) quite often. I must say my version of the receipe is a little different than yours, so I decided to give yours a try. It was very good indeed, only one thing I didn't care for and that was the lemon juice. I will omit it next time, thats NOT a critic by all means! Just my own personal taste. Very good, and will make it again. Thank you for posting.
