Kale and Sausage Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
Several years ago, I had a dish in a local restaurant that was so good I was determined to duplicate it at home. I played with the recipe until I finally got it right. That gratifying experience sparked my interest in creating tasty dishes like this.—John Croce Jr., Yarmouth, Massachusetts

MY REVIEW

"Living in New Bedford , Mass. area all my life, I can tell you that This is basic Portuguese soup....I used chopped chourico in place of bulk sausage.....adjust seasonings to your taste as chourico can be spicy...serve with a crusty bread and side salad....healthy and delicious."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2011

"I confess I did not try this recipe, but it's likely that the gentleman who submitted this recipe remembers having Portuguese Kale soup in the restaurant he mentions. His attempt to duplicate it includes most of the ingredients for this famous and wonderful dish. I suggest considering re-naming this recipe so it will be found when people are searching for the ethnic original."
