Caldo – An Easy Portuguese Inspired soup
Caldo Verde is a popluar soup in Portuguese cuisine. The basic traditional ingredients for caldo verde are potatoes, kale, olive oil and salt. Additionally garlic or onion may be added. Some meat such as ham or chicken takes it to just another level of flavor. The one below, a rather simple but deliciously good was first introduced to me by my aunt when I was a child.
