My dad left this recipe on a previous blog post after having it at a restaurant. Karen decided to give it a try (the vegetarian version, without chorizo) and it was a great success! She added a few more spices and used hot peppers from the garden - Jalapeño & Hungarian Hot Wax - delicious!
Please feel free to leave your recipes in the 'comments' section and I will post them to the main page. Here are the ingredients for Portuguese Kale & Potato Soup:
3 small onions
3-4 garlic cloves or scapes, finely chopped
5-6 medium sized potatoes
1 bunch of kale
Salt & pepper, to taste
Mint (optional but definitely recommended)
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 sliced chorizo sausage (optional)
Fry chilies, garlic and onion in olive oil in a soup pot. Add sliced chorizo if desired. Add potatoes and stock (based on desired quantity, 4-6 cups). Simmer until tender. Add kale and lemon zest and simmer for 5 more minutes. Add lemon juice just before serving. Enjoy!
Hungarian Hot Wax - spicy!!!
