Im usually not easily impressed but the flavors are so robust it's a winner! My 2 boys, 11&12yrs old, loved it...They did add cheese and sour cream to theirs. I did ground up fresh pork chorizo and I also put about half of the potatoes only in my vitamix with a small amount of broth, then added it to the chunky soup. Absolutely perfect! Top with a dollop of sour cream to finish it off... yummmmm
Made this soup today - and found, with personal preferance modifications - it was VERY tastey,
I used all the listed ingredients, but rather than cook the potatoes ahead, I simply diced them up and added to the soup with a good 1-2 cups choppped spinach. I did NOT pulvarize the soup - instead we enjoyed it with all it's chunky goodness! As the recipe name indicates - satisfying!
All of us loved this soup! I made it just as written, although I used fresh chorizo. Maybe I should have used dried because when I sliced the fresh chorizo it fell apart into pieces. I just formed them into little balls, flattened them, and sauteed them as in the recipe. I used both the carrots and some kale when making the soup. When it was done cooking, I pureed half of it, and then mixed that with the other half, making a soup with a thicker broth while retaining some texture from the veggies in the soup. I usually make soup that way, and it worked well with this recipe. The kale gave the soup a very mild sort of peppery flavor that we enjoyed. I've already made a second batch and packaged it for the freezer -- I can then defrost it overnight so we can enjoy this great soup on even the busiest of days!
I thought this soup had great flavour! I used yellow-fleshed potatoes, left the skins on and cooked them in the broth. It saved an additional pot but since I kept the lid on I think the soup was a bit thinner than I would have preferred. Also - the calorie count on my soup was only 350 per serving with 12 g of fat - probably had something to do with the brand of chorizo - President's Choice. I will DEFINITELY make this again.
I am Portuguese so I knew I was going to love this soup. It was so easy and delicious. I have made soup 3 times in the last week, just can't get enough of it :) I enjoyed it pureed with sliced French loaf. Thank you for posting and I will make it again. I have some left overs and can't wait to have some tomorrow. Made for New Kids On The Block Tag Game.
