My Dad grew up in New Bedford and Fairhaven MA so he was very much into Portugues food. My mom was a typical "nothing spicy" New England cook. However, she attempted to make this soup for my dad. She definately succeeded. Make sure you have some crusty bread or portugues rolls to sop up the juices. You will not find a better Kale soup anywhere. Enjoy!
It's so easy to make and is just one of those feel good recipes. Sticks to the ribs and warms you up kind of meal. I have a wonderful electric 8 quart dutch oven that I make this in but you can use any kind.
