Method

  1. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onions, garlic and chorizo, then cook for 5 mins until soft. Throw in the potatoes and cook for a few mins more. Pour in the stock, season and bring to the boil. Cook everything for 10 mins until the potatoes are on the brink of collapse.
  2. Use a masher to squash the potatoes into the soup, then bring back to the boil. Add the kale and cook for 5 mins until tender. Ladle the soup into bowls, then serve drizzled with the remaining olive oil.

Me and my husband love this soup!

Very nice. Added some chilli after reading comments below and it was a lovely and zingy winter warmer for a grey monday.

Suprisingly delicious. A great way to use up kale from a veg box. I added a squeeze of tomato puree, a tin of butter beans and a touch of chilli. Yum!

Great simple recipe - Hearty and warming. I added the juice of lemon and a small amount of chilli for extra heat and it was absolutely delicious. Ate over 3 days and just kept getting better!

We loved this. Easy to make and very good on a cold autumn evening. I used a little less liquid to make it more like stew than a soup. I just made sure the stock only covered the potatoes, no more than that. Will definately be making this one again. The picture here looks a lot redder than my meal did, perhaps tomatoes could/should be added.

Nice, but I think it is lacking something. If I do try this again I will probably spice it up and add some tomatoes.

Delicious! A new favourite in our house, and a fight for the leftovers! Quick, easy and healthy. Great with fresh crusty bread.

Excellent winter supper. Even my daughter who "hates soup" was appreciative!

Absolutely delicious. I would agree with not adding the extra olive oil on top - I just used a tablespoon. Also instead of mashing the potatoes, take out the chorizo and blend the soup before adding the chorizo and kale. I don't know why but this makes a huge difference and it is much better.
Also used savoy cabbage when kale is out of season.

made this for lunch today, and it was delicious! I halved the recipe as I'm a student and didn't need the full 6 portions, but a very easy and very yummy recipe. thanks goodfood!!

Great soup, perfect for fall/winter! I didn't use any olive oil and added some passata for a little extra flavour. This soup also tasted better the day after... much more "chorizo-y". I will definitely make this again!

This was delicious, but I agree with Belkey's suggestion re no extra oil required.

Good potential, but you really do not need to use the olive oil as the chorizo chucks out a lot of oil in the cooking process and in my opinion this needs to be skimmed off once you add the stock. Would also recommend adding some tomato puree and tabasco for a bit more flavour.
