Caldo verde


Caldo verde is a very Portuguese soup and probably one of the most traditional dishes, which can be found in any typical or small restaurant in the country. It is best served in winter, and its gentle taste is delicious with a slice of chourizo.

2.2 lbs potatoes
4 onions
Salt to taste
1/2 pound (250 gr.) kale
Thin slices of chorizo ​​to taste
1 heaped tablespoon of olive oil

Remove the skin of potatoes and onions and place them in a large pan, cut into halves and covered with water. Let them boil and cook till tender. When ready, blend them into puree. Wash and cut the kale to very tiny and fine strips. Add them to soup and stir wells. Season with salt and olive oil and cook until they are sof
t for 10-15 minutes. Serve them in little bowls and garnish with a slice of chourizo in each bowl. Serve hot.
