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
