  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 600g chorizo sausage
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 1000g potatoes
  • 200g curly kale
  • 28ml chicken stock
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  1. Dice the onion and finely chop the garlic. Wash the kale and remove the stems. Peel and dice the potatoes. Thickly slice the sausage.
  2. Heat the oil and cook the onion and sausage over a low heat for about 20 minutes until soft.
  3. Stir in the garlic and potatoes and cook for a further 10 minutes. Add the kale leaves and cover with the stock.

This is very similar to caldo verde, which is understandable, as this is a Brazilian recipe!
