With a mild flavor resembling that of cabbage, kale is the central ingredient in this traditional Portuguese recipe. The thick, hearty soup calls for chorizo, a garlicky pork sausage that is available in most grocery stores, but you can also substitute linguica, a Portuguese sausage.

  • Remove soup from heat, and puree with an immersion blender. Return to heat; add kale, and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook chorizo until the fat renders and the sausage turns golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the sausage, and drain on a paper-towel-lined plate. Thinly slice sausage crosswise. Serve soup with a drizzle of olive oil, and garnish with chorizo slices.
