Be sure to use smoked Spanish chorizo in this delicious soup recipe, not raw Mexican chorizo.
2 ounces Spanish chorizo sausage, finely chopped
1 cup prechopped onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
2 (15-ounce) cans organic cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
4 cups prechopped kale
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Cracked black pepper (optional)
How to Make It
Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chorizo to pan; sauté 1 minute. Add onion and garlic to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender.
While onions cook, pour broth into a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH for 3 minutes. Add hot broth and beans to pan; bring to a boil. Partially mash beans with potato masher. Stir in kale and 1/2 teaspoon pepper; cook over medium heat 6 minutes. Sprinkle with cracked pepper, if desired.
Definitely needs something, I followed the recipe exactly. It is very filling. I have a whole pot left, since no one in my family will even touch it. Maybe I'll make some pico de gallo to add some flavor. Add pico to anything and it will taste good
Hi all I cooked this tonight for the first time, no changes to the recipe and I loved loved loved it. Great flavour mix, a very hearty soup with not much broth I like this type of soup for injecting a change of textures, because sometimes a broth or blended soup is not enough of a meal. It's a perfect dish for a winters night. I even loved eating it cold. Getting good flavoured chorizo makes this soup pop. 5 well deserved stars :)
I call this soup Swamp Goo. Every once in a while I try a recipe and it ends up just annoying me and this was one of those recipes! If you have to change a recipe SO completely to make it work, then the recipe is just no good. I gave this one a try b/c even though people made a lot of changes, it was highly rated. Sometimes people make changes but the base recipe is still good without those changes. Not this one. It just DOES NOT WORK with the proportions they have here. Once I put in the 2 cans of beans,there was very little liquid proportionately and the kale had not even been added. I ended up adding another 3 cups of broth AND a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes. I will take the blame for it becoming Swamp Goo b/c I used frozen chopped kale rather than fresh...so maybe the amount of fresh kale would have been fine (I doubt it) but even just adding 2 cups of frozen kale was entirely too much. Try CL North Woods Bean Soup instead. MUCH BETTER!!!!!
Couldn't find chorizo at our local grocery. Instead, made little turkey meatballs with hot pepper flakes, parsley, and shredded parmesan. Used one small can of diced tomatoes for color and flavor, but otherwise, followed the recipe. Turned out fabulous! Served with crusty bread, this has become a fall staple at our house.
This is excellent! I tweaked it a bit, I added a can of no salt organic diced tomatoes, a handful of basil, thyme and a squirt of a lemon, I also added 1/2 a cup of Minnesota wild rice and fresh baby spinach. Also, instead of the chorizo, I used diced baked ham, instead of two cans of white beans, I used one can and one can of black beans. Doubled up the broth, too!
