    velvet_sj's Note:

    My boy friend is portuguese, and had a yen for this soup, after many test runs, I think I've got it. I've seen lots of variations, but this is close to what he remembers from his youth, lots of kale, linguica and a hearty broth. He likes this with crusty sourdough bread, but being from the south, I like it with good ole cast iron skillet cornbread.

      Chop kale and add to pot and "wilt" about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add broth, cover and simmer at least 45 minutes.

      Adjust seasonings, and serve.
    7. 7
      If soup seems tooo thick, just add another can of broth.

      This was FABULOUS!!! I've tried several recipes, this is spot on! I didn't have linguica, so I subbed some andouille and some Mexican chorizo...will use this combo from now on! Thanks for posting!!!

      I love this recipe... in my Jewish-Portuguese family we call it Caldo Verde and it's the national soup of Portugal! But our recipe varies slightly in that we add white beans to it and I use kosher turkey linguica or other kosher type of sausage. Try a splash of Tapatio Hot Sauce or Habanero Hot Sauce.... mmmmmmgggoooddd!!!
