Kale & Chorizo Portuguese Clear Soup

The original very traditional Portuguese recipe takes long to prepare but this is the easy and quick version.

Recipe By: Alia (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/382)
Serves 4 Prep: 10 min Nutrition: 50 cals

Ingredients

Olive oil 2 tbsp
Onion (small) 1
Garlic 1 clove
Chilli flakes 1 tsp
Potatoes 250g
Chicken stock cubes in water 3 (800ml)
Kale 100g
Chorizo 100g
Pepper as required
Parsley as required

Method

1
Put the oil in a pan and add the chilli flakes and finely chopped onion and garlic and fry on medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
2
Add the 1cm diced potatoes and chicken stock and bring to the boil and cook for 15 minutes. Add the kale and cook for a further 15 minutes.
3
Add the roughly chopped chorizo and simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes, season with pepper and finely chopped parsley before serving.
4
Once transferred to a serving bowl, enjoy with a baguette.

Tips & Note

Such a simple homely Portuguese soup. Traditionally, the chorizo is fried first but the soup would turn red. This modern version makes a clear soup.
At Step 3, you can add more chicken stock if you prefer a stronger bolder flavour. You probably won't need to season with salt because of the salty chorizo and stock cubes.
The kale would benefit from steeping for a while so that it doesn't stay hard, so try to prepare this earlier to give it time to absorb the liquid and soften.
