This is a hearty, satisfying, and filling soup. It"s uma of a best soups I"ve tasted, bursting com flavor e depth. Delicious.

I prepared the full quantity of greens as instructed but when I fui to add it, I stopped at around halfway. If i had added it all, it would have been much more of naquela "kale with a chorizo sauce" type of scenario. As it was, making use of half, ser estar just right. Delicious soup packed with kale. Yet still naquela soup.

I used Cavolo Nero. I added 1/4 tsp initially because I wasn"t sure how salty the chorizo would taste. Ns tasted again after I had added a chorizo e added much more salt. In total, I added 3/4 tsp maldon salt.

I cooled the soup, refrigerated overnight, and had it a next day porque o lunch. It ser estar so much better than ns day before. A addition of ns blended chorizo e letting it rest overnight yes, really did make this right into something quite special. Following day, ns whole chorizo foi ~ still whole e firm yet slightly softened by ns soup e added more texture, which era very enjoyable.

There era just me eating this and one bowl was enough para lunch. I have actually put a rest into separado Tupperware and am freezing it. That"s an additional 7 sections so a bruta of 8 servings.

Kale soup? Caldo Verde? contact it what you will, this soup is hearty e homey and ready in under one hour! regardless of using naquela very spicy knife and my best kitchen skills, ns didn"t achieve a thin kale shreds ns recipe called for, therefore the último result wasn"t rather as elegant as ns photo shows, but that didn"t detract são de the odor of the duram result.

I used der mild chorizo sausage, Yukon yellow potatoes (which ns didn"t peel as a skins were file thin), curly kale, and homemade chicken stock. Ns did add der sprinkle that crushed vermelho pepper flakes at the fim of cooking, but I would host off ~ above the final seasoning till you determine how much heat and salt your sausage is adding to a mix.

Served with a salad e grilled cheese sandwiches, this made der great casual supper.

I added 1/2 the chorizo earlier to a soup prior to blending e didn"t overprocess a mixture using an immersion blender. Coming across ns slices that sausage and a few stray cubes that potatoes estão nice little surprises.

This foi ~ fantastic. However I think much depends on the quality of your chorizo and stock. I"ve make it before using polishing sausage or keilbasa and boxed stock and it was nós vamos but not der 10.
