How about trying it without the Chorizo and keeping it simpler and lighter: Kale, Mushroom and Chickpea Soup. This is easy to make, tasty and very healthy. https://theeighthours.wordpress.com/2015/09/06/kale-mushroom-chickpea-soup/

The recipe says cooking chorizo, but I've tried it with cured chorizo too and it worked just as well. It may just be the variety I bought, but I found the cooking chorizo didn't hold its shape as nicely.

Delicious, warming soup. I didn't need to add chilli, the chorizo was enough flavour. Mine was much thicker with the potato than this picture shows. Such a good way to eat kale!

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.
