Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds chorizo sausage, sliced in 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 large white potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 quarts of chicken stock
  • 4 cups kale, rinsed, stemmed, and cut into 1-inch strips
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 6 tablespoons chiffonade of fresh mint
  • Small loaf of crusty bread
  • Cooking Directions

    In a large stock 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. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are fork tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and skim off any fat. Stir in the parsley. Ladle the soup into shallow bowls and garnish with the fresh mint. Serve the soup with crusty bread.
