I cook most nights. It's my way of unwinding after a long day. A few nights ago, short on ingredients, I patched together a version of a staple in every Portuguese household. Growing up, it made a regular appearance at our family's table. "Caldo Verde"...or translation, Green Broth is a tasty soup of brilliant green kale hanging on to crispy chorizo buoys. In my version I used white beans instead of potatoes to thicken the broth. It was delicious!
Even though I am not Irish, it is that time of year when the color green appears in the most unlikely of edible. So, tomorrow night if your wondering what to eat...Caldo Verde may be just the thing!
