Caldo Verde

So, my news years resolution is to only cook from my cookbooks (instead of finding recipes online, which i have been doing for, oh, 2 years now). So! My first "new" culinary adventure was to make this Portuguese Greens Soup, which is from The Joy of Cooking (75th Anniversary edition...thanks mom and dad!) Here is the recipe:


1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 c. chicken stock
2 large potatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp. olive oil
3 links Italian sausage, casing removed
4 c. washed, dried, chopped kale
2 tbsp. lemon juice


Saute onion and garlic in large stock pot in olive oil. Add chicken stock and potatoes, bring to a boil, and then simmer for 20 minutes. In a skillet, brown the sausage in olive oil, then add to soup. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add kale, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and enjoy!
