Caldo Verde


Caldo Verde! What is Caldo Verde? Caldo Verde is a popular soup in Portuguese cuisine and if I am not mistaken, firstly making its presence known in Northern Portugal. How do I know about Portuguese dishes? Well, we in Malaysia have been exposed to the influence of Portuguese cooking and food from back then, back then ages ago. Says it all I suppose? Me and my Portuguese dishes  (Egg VindalooDevilled Prawns, Pada Salt Fish Pickle & Chicken Devil Curry)?  Of course, I should also include the other types of soups I have invested my cooking time in? The various types, and my recipes, as usual, won't kill your money  and time (Thai Tomato SoupBurdock Root Soup, Tomato Spinach Soup, Onion Soup, Tom Yum Goong & Salted Fish Bone Soup). This my version of Caldo Verde? A vegetarian version (Lentil Vegetable Soup). Thick, creamy and luscious (Creamy Mushroom Soup) as an utter satisfaction, and the key central ingredients are potatoes (Vegan Potato Curry & Potato Egg Curry) and kale. Slurrrppp!! 



Ingredients
3 medium size yellow potatoes
1 red onion - chopped
5 garlic - chopped
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 bunch kale - slice thinly
2 cup vegetable broth
Pepper and salt for taste
Method
Saute onion and garlic in butter.
Add potatoes and stir for two minutes or so.
Pour vegetable stock and simmer till potatoes are cooked.
Remove from heat and let it cool down.
Blend/purée to a thick purée.
Reheat the soup and add kale.
Season with salt.
Stir and simmer to heat through.
Dash in some pepper and olive oil before serving.
