Caldo verde, kind of.

With a bunch of kale from the grocery store and a fresh batch of chicken stock, I decided to make Caldo Verde. It’s a classic Portuguese soup which literally means “green soup”. It’s made with pork sausage traditionally but I decided to use bacon for fat and flavor and the chicken from the roast earlier this week instead. The soup has pureed potatoes which adds a thicker texture to the otherwise clear broth. I threw some of the bacon pieces from the initial fat rendering on top of the soup for garnish. I think I’ll stick to pork sausage next time as it could use a little more grease.
