  • 450g of savoy cabbage, sliced
  • 500g of potatoes, diced
  • 380g of vegetable stock
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 piece of spicy chorizo, sliced
  • olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


    1. Heat some oil in a heavy-base pan. Add the onion and the garlic and cook until they begin to soften and turn light golden.
    2. Add the potatoes and cook for 2 minutes, stirring, then add the stock. Bring to the boil and cook covered for 15 minutes or until tender. Mash the potatoes.
    3. Add the sliced cabbage and cook for further 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    4. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan and cook the chorizo until crispy.
    5. Pour the "caldo verde" (green soup) into individual cups and scatter over the top some chorizo crispy slices.

Good and easy recipe, only thing I would recommend is to add the chorizo to the soup in the last 5 minutes of cooking, frying in a pan loses the wonderful smokie flavour. You really want that in the soup. Also use Portuguese chorizo NOT Spanish, it has loads more flavour and much less fat content.
