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.

The genuine Portuguese recipe uses dried salted cod but it's hard to find here in the UK so I added salt onto a cod fillet and sauteed it - it's not bad at all!

Blend the mackerel to make an instant pate. Delicious when spread on toast. Traditional pates use butter but this time I used cream cheese which makes it much milder.
