Kale and chorizo soup

Starter Serves 4 1h 10 min
Inspired by the Portuguese favourite, caldo verde, this rustic stew makes a cheap and tasty weeknight dinner. It gets even better if cooked a couple of hours or even a day beforehand, so the chorizo has time to infuse the broth. Chorizo sausage is available from Riverford, made in our kitchens.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 600g chorizo sausage, thickly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1kg potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 200g kale, washed and stems removed
  • 1 litre chicken stock
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 1h
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil and cook the onion and sausage over a low heat for about 20 minutes until soft. Stir in the garlic and potatoes and cook for a further 10 minutes
  • Step 2

    Roughly chop the kale leaves and cover with the stock. Simmer for 30 minutes adding more stock to keep everything covered.
  • Step 3

    Season to taste and serve with crusty bread.
