*I just made it and this time i used soy chorizo for the first time,it turned out pretty good, I'm not vegetarian but I don't eat pork or beef, if i make posting recipes a regular thang on here I will try to always post a veggie version (shout out to Braia and Laura on a mission to saving the animals).
KALE AND CHORIZO SOUP:
|2 tablespoon||olive oil|
|1½ pounds||chorizo sausage; sliced 1/2 slices|
|1 cup||chopped onions|
|2 tablespoon||minced garlic|
|2 large||white potatoes; peeled and diced|
|3 quart||chicken stock|
|4 cup||rinsed and stemmed kale; cut into 1 strips|
|(2 ||bay leaves |
|¼ teaspoon||dried thyme) or whatever spices ya got in the kitchen |
|1 pinch||crushed red pepper|
|¼ cup||finely-chopped parsley or basil |
| and some ||fresh mint|
In a large pot, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the chorizo and onions. Saute the mixture for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and potatoes and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the stock and kale and bring the liquid up to a boil. Stir in the bay leaves, thyme and crushed red pepper. Season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are tender ( for about 30 minutes). Remove from the heat and skim off any fat. Stir in the parsley or basil. Depending on how sick I am I add a lot of cayenne and pepper to the soup...a little garlic bread on the side is nice with this.
