Many People enjoy green soup with sausage. So, I thought I would include this recipe also.


4 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
6 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2 quarts cold water
1/2 lb. of linguica sausage, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons salt
ground black pepper to taste
1 pound kale, rinsed and thin cut or julienne

In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook onion and garlic in 3 tablespoons olive oil for  3 or 4 minutes. Stir in potatoes and cook, stirring constantly, 3 or 4 minutes more. Pour  in water, bring to a boil, and let boil gently for 20 minutes, until potatoes are real mushy.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-low heat, cook sausage until it has release  most of its fat, 10 minutes. Drain.
Mash potatoes or puree. Add the sausage, salt and pepper into the soup and return to medium heat. Cover and simmer 5 minutes. Just before serving, stir kale into soup and simmer, until kale is tender and jade green. Stir in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and serve at once.
