star's StoryKale soup is a staple in the Portuguese culture. It is filling and a real comfort food. This recipe is from Racheal Ray. You will find hundreds of recipes for this soup on the internet, but I like this one.
(2 turns around the pan) extra-virgin olive oil
white waxy potatoes, like yukon golds, peeled and diced
bay leaves, fresh or dried
kale, coarsely chopped
coarse salt and pepper
(15-ounce) garbanzos (chick peas), drained and rinsed
diced chourico, casing removed
warm, crusty bread

1Heat oil in a deep pot over medium high heat. Add potatoes and onions, cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2Add garlic, bay leaves, and kale to the pot. Cover pot and wilt greens 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add beans, tomatoes, chourico, and broth to the pot and bring soup to a full boil. Reduce heat back to medium and cook 5 to 10 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender.
3Serve soup with hunks of crusty bread and butter.

This sounds really good! I love kale and try to find new ways to use it..sounds like this will be perfect! Not a big fan of chorizo, but I'm sure it would be good with other kinds of sausage, too...italian, linguica, andouille..yum!
