Number of Servings: 1


    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1 onion, finely chopped
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    6 potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
    1 pound cabbage, thinly sliced
    2 quarts water
    8 ounces Portuguese chourico sausage, casing removed, sliced 1/4-inch thick
    1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    2 teaspoons salt
    pepper to taste
    olive oil


Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Stir in onion and garlic; cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 3 minutes. Add sliced potatoes and half of the cabbage, cook until the cabbage wilts, about 3 minutes.
Pour in water, then bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, then cover, and simmer until the potatoes have softened, about 15 minutes.
Carefully puree the soup in batches until smooth, then return to the stove over medium heat. Add sausage and remaining cabbage; season with paprika, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer, then cover, and cook for 5 minutes until the cabbage has softened.
To serve, ladle into large flat soup plates and drizzle with generous amount of olive oil

    It looks like whoever created this recipe didn't enter any ingredients in the step one except Kale which is why it's reading so few calories and one serving. I did a makeover subbing cooking spray for oil and smoked turkey sausage for chorico. 4 servings = 192 cal per 1 1/2 cp serving :) - 12/4/12

    just searching for a caldo verde recipe and noticed that the nutritional info for this has to be way off--there's 3 T of oil and 8 oz of sausage and only 3.1 g of fat? - 7/9/08
