Today was the last day of my Christmas vacation and it was hard to get moving this morning. While the Arctic Outbreak hasn’t reached Florida yet, I decided it was best to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather! For the first time in years, I rode my bike to the nearest Publix shopping center. It was 6 miles round trip and I found that it was a lot more challenging to balance the bike when the basket was loaded up with food!
I did find a new Publix Aprons recipe to try! Caldo Verde is a popular Portuguese soup, traditionally made with collard greens and meatless. Pubix has their version and now I’ll show you mine!
Time: 40 mins
- 3-4 links of Italian sausage (I used chicken sausage)
- 1 (32 oz) container reduced-sodium chicken broth (I used a vegetarian version)
- 3 large potatoes, chopped
- 1 lb kale
- I added: 1/2 cup of diced yellow onions and 1 cup of sliced portobello mushrooms
Cut sausages into 1/2-inch pieces and cook 4-5 minutes on medium in a stock pot. Add broth and chopped potatoes (and onions if you choose). Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 18-20 minutes or until potatoes begin to soften.
Stir in kale (and optional mushrooms); salt and pepper to your liking, and cook 10-12 more minutes or until kale and potatoes are tender.
This made so much food! I decided to freeze some and save it for a cold winter night!
Stay warm America!
