Portuguese Kale and Chorizo Soup

Glenda Purvis


I was jonesing for a good soup, and my daughter (who is a classically trained chef btw) concocted this recipe. Don't be intimidated by the length of ingredients - most of these items are probably lying around your kitchen already! A great hearty soup.
