    Units: US | Metric

    • 6 cups low sodium chicken broth
    • 2 lbs red potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4 inch cubes
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1 lb kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
    • 2 large leeks, white and green parts only, cut in half lengthwise, then sliced thin crosswise
    • 1/2 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves cut crosswise into 1/4 inch strips
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


    1. 1
      Bring broth, potatoes, and bay leaf to boil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender (about 10 minutes). Discard bay leaf. Using potato masher, coarsely break up potatoes, leaving large chunks.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, melt butter in Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook kielbasa, stirring frequently, until lightly browned in spots (about 4 minutes). Add leeks and cook until soft (about 4 minutes).
    3. 3
      Add potato mixture and kale to Dutch oven and simmer until kale is tender (about 5 minutes). Season with pepper and serve.

      I prepared this for PAC Spring 2008. This recipe is truly a great find for me! It is almost identical to the "House Soup" at my favorite Portuguese restaurant. Of course they wouldn't hand over the recipe. The only alteration I made to the recipe was to leave the skins on the potatoes. I hate peeling potatoes and throwing away the nutrients. It's a robust soup with a delightful mixture of flavors. Moms don't let the kale keep you from making it for the kids. The kale is a compliment not an overpowering flavor. It's an excellent filling soup that I'll make again and again.

      This soup was really great. I used hot Italian sausage instead of kielbasa, which gave it an extra dose of heat - great for helping keep colds at bay. I really liked how quickly everything came together.

      I have made this soup for several occasions and it is always a hit. Only problem is never getting to bring any leftovers home. Everyone loves it.
