INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 cups water or chicken stock
  • ½ yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 medium potatoes, preferably Yukon Gold
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 bunch kale, sliced
  • cooked chorizo or portuguese sausage
Instructions:
Bring the water to a simmer. Add the onion, potatoes, salt, pepper, garlic, and crushed red pepper, if desired. Simmer for 10 minutes, until the potatoes are soft.
