Soup with Friends

This month my cousin, JoDe, a few friends and I are all going to make one soup a week. We want to make an effort to cook fresh, but warm, feel-good foods as the weather becomes cooler, so soups sounded like a good idea. Join us and comment below on any thoughts or changes you make to the recipe, especially if you have a substitution that worked really well.

This week’s recipe is from The Brazilian Kitchen by Leticia Moreinos Schwartz.

Portuguese Soup: Caldo Verde:

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 large onion diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/4 lbs small yellow potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2 ” chunks

1 1/2 quarts chicken stock

3/4 lb pork sausage (linguica or chorizo)

kosher salt, freshly ground pepper and a pinch of cayenne pepper

  2. caldo verde, is the name of this Portuguese soup. It is a trivial meal delight that is so popular in Portuguese culture that is often mentioned in the Portuguese typical music called Fado as evidenced in the video below by the goddess of all fadistas – One who sings the Fado –
    Enjoy the caldo verde, The bread, the wine, the fado, and Amália Rodrigues as you just allow your mind to find your self in a Portuguese home, certainly!
