(I went snowshoeing yesterday when I'd rather be on my Mt. Bike) Besides the snow, I like it, and it is a good way to eat the greens we all know we should.
Linguisa is a Portuguese sausage that is one of my favorites.
12 ounces Linguisa sausage
1 bunch kale, washed and ripped up
2 potatoes, cubed
2 carrots peeled and diced
3 cloves garlic
1 can chick peas (garbanzo beans)
1 chopped onion
1 quart chicken stock
1 1/2 quarts water
salt and pepper
1 TBsp. paprika
cayenne or red pepper flakes
Add your garlic and cook for a minute.
Once the potatoes are cooked add the carrots (under the kale) and the kale. Kale wilts as it cooks so this is not an excessive amount.
After just a few minutes the kale shrinks down and everything looks good but you should cook this longer before eating it. Add the rest of the seasonings.
Partially cover and go do something else for a bit and let this cook. This will be another happy marriage of P-I-G and greens if you let it simmer for another 25 minutes or so.
Finished! I like this with some cayenne and some crusty bread or toast. My soups are always really chunky. If you like lots of broth add more chicken stock and water.
