For this Caldo Verde recipe (from, you’ll need these veggies from your local farmer: kale, potatoes, onion, and garlic. Aside from farm-fresh veggies, you’ll need some olive oil and linguica sausage.

Option: While sausage is traditional in this dish, it can be left out for a delicious vegan soup!

  1. I love this soup, but because I’m vegan, I use the soy chorizo……nice and spicy! :)

  2. This is one of my favorite recipes from my portuguese upbringing. However, I have to note that it can be made with sausage or chourico. Not chorizo. They are very different sausages with very different flavors. Cazamance, the food trailer at CTC Garden, has a sausage from West Africa that is very similar to chourico that can be used in this recipe for the most traditional flavor.
