    Nana Lee's Note:

    This is a traditional Portuguese soup served in homes, and especially at the Holy Ghost Feast, a yearly celebration. I don't get to there any more, but at least I have the recipe! Some of the true afficionados use several kinds of beef, including liver. All ingredient amts are estimates, as are the number of servings.

      My two sisters were queens at the festas! Baby to Big Queen, and we marched in the parade as well, carrying flags or capes, in the summer heat! And it was all for soupas, linguica, fava beans, sweetbread, and the auction! This recipe is almost identical to the Portuguese hall recipe I have from my mom. Can't wait to try it, and soak the meat in wine overnight, haven't done that before.

      I made this recipe for my family (half of us are portugese)this tasted exactly as i remember it at the portuguese halls. I added a pinch of mint at the end of cooking per my dad's request and that just enhanced the flavor. Wonderful !
