"2 links linguica" is about 13 oz of sausage, give of take. Really the whole recipe is a give or take kind of recipe, to taste. I have sometimes added a chopped carrot for color and taste. Also you can use chicken broth or stock. Really good on a cold night.


  1. Chop linguica into rounds. In dutch over or large pot, heat 1 tbsp olive oil and add linguica, cook until linguica begins to golden and the oil begins to turn pink or orange. Add chopped onions, saute a few minutes. Add garlic, saute 1 minute. Add white beans, white pepper, and chicken broth/stock, bring to boil, reduce to medium low, Cover and cook 1 to 2 hours. Before serving, shred the kale and add to the pot and cook about 15 minutes (longer if you like it more wilted) Serve.
