There are many versions of this wonderful soup, but its roots seem to be in Spain itself. It is a classic combination of beans, meats, and veggies. It is a little more complex than the ones here in zaar. Chopped fresh dill makes an excellent garnish for this dish.
- 1⁄2 lb dried white bean, soaked in water overnight and drained
- 1 lb chicken thigh
- 1⁄2 lb spanish chorizo, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1⁄2 lb smoked ham, cut into 1/2-inch dice
- 1⁄4 lb salt pork, chopped
- 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 3 shots Tabasco sauce
- 2 1⁄2 quarts water
- 1⁄2 lb potato, peeled, quartered and sliced
- 1⁄2 lb green cabbage, thinly sliced
- 2 -3 cups kale, tough stems removed, thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 lb turnip, peeled, quartered and sliced
- salt and pepper
- In a 8 qt stockpot, simmer the first 10 ingredients, covered, for 45 minutes, or until the chicken is tender.
- Remove chicken from the pot.
- Debone the chicken, chop the meat and reserve.
- Add to the pot: potatoes, cabbage, kale and turnips.
- Simmer, covered, for 25 minutes longer.

- Simmer a few more minutes until all is hot, and serve.
- The soup keeps well for a few days in the refrigerator.
Easy and delicious. Lots of swaps here... I used chicken breast and 3 legs. Used collards instead of green cabbage, homemade kielbasa instead of chorizo. Frozen onions for fresh. A freezer clean out recipe. Love the smell coming from my stove. Serve with good bread!!!!!
If I could give this soup more stars I would. This is definately going into our regular rotation. Thank you, luvcook'n for posting!
