Portuguese Chorizo/Chourico and Kale Soup with Jacobsen Pure Kosher Sea Salt
We teamed up with our good friends at World Foods to create a series of soup recipes perfect for chilly autumn weather. We sourced all our ingredients from World Foods and shared the recipe so that they could serve it to their customers in the Deli!
This Portuguese Chourico and Kale Soup is a stunner. Layers of flavor and texture create a rich and hearty soup - perfect for the season. Our Jacobsen Pure Kosher Sea Salt adds perfect bursts of bright salinity and helps every ingredient to shine.
- In a large Le Creuset Dutch Oven add olive oil, onion, and shallot and saute over medium high heat until the onions begin to brown around the edges - about 5 mins. Add garlic and saute another minute or two. Add Jacobsen Kosher Sea Salt to taste
- Transfer this mixture to a bowl.
- In the same dutch oven over medium high heat, add the chorizo and cook until it begins to brown - about 2-3 mins.
- Transfer the chorizo to the bowl with the onions, leaving as much chorizo oil as you can in the dutch oven.
- In the same dutch oven over medium high heat, add a bit more olive oil and then add the potatoes. Cook until they start to brown around the edges, about 5 mins. Add Jacobsen Kosher Sea Salt to taste at this point as well.
- Now add the white wine to the pan and scrape up all the brown bits on the bottom of the pan, reducing the wine by about half
- Add all the cooked ingredients back to the dutch oven, add the tomatoes, beans, peppers, chicken stock, lemon zest, and honey - bringing the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring until it comes to temperature..
- Once the soup comes to a simmer, turn heat to low and let cook for about 15-30 mins, allowing the flavors to meld. Taste the soup and add more Jacobsen Kosher Sea Salt to taste
- To finish, add the parsely and sliced kale to the soup, stir, and simmer for 3 to 5 mins - make sure you don't over cook the kale, it should still have some bite to it.
- Turn off the heat, and serve with a drizzle of good olive oil and a slice of warm or toasted bread.
