Found this on a blog called Two Azores Chicks. It sounds very similar to a soup from Olive Garden that I love!

Serves:

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

45 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1/4 c
olive oil
2 medium
onions, chopped
3 clove
garlic, minced
4 medium
potatoes, cut into chunks
8 c
water or combo of water and chicken stock
1/2 lb
kale, stems removed and julienned
1/2 lb
chouriço or chorizo
good salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chouriço and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon remove the chouriço to a plate.
2
Add the onions into the pot and season with salt and pepper. Saute until they’re translucent and soft. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes more.
3
Add the 8 cups of liquid and the potatoes and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are almost done, 15 to 20 minutes.
4
When potatoes are almost done lower heat and add the chouriço. Then partially puree with an immersion blender. Do not puree completely. Leave soup a little chunky for a more rustic comfort feel.
5
Add the shredded kale and bring everything back to a boil and cook down greens for 15-20 minutes. Season with more salt, if needed, and pepper.
