Portuguese Caldo Verde recipe

As hard as it is to let go of summer, I'm already getting excited about fall recipes.  In fact, as you can see, I couldn't wait.  This Portuguese sausage kale potato soup embodies much of what I love about this cooking season: a tasty, steamy, smoky, comforting dinner in one pot. And speaking of the pot, beautiful blue Dutch Oven from Lodge, like the one that you see in the photo above, will be given away to one of Panning The Globe's visitors.  I'll tell you more about how to enter the giveaway after I share more with you about this delicious, authentic Portuguese soup. Portuguese Caldo Verde In Portugal the most popular meat is pork and the best-loved soup is sausage kale potato soup, also know as Caldo Verde. It's often served at weddings and other special occasions. Caldo Verde originated in the Minho region of northern portugal.  You might be familiar with the delicious sparkling wine called Vinho Verde, which hails from that same region.

Stemming Kale

Kale and potatoes are abundant in this recipe.  I love to use the darker, more delicate lacinato kale.  First remove the thick center ribs.  Then stack and roll the leaves and slice them into thin slivers. kale for Caldo Verde After the potatoes cook in the broth, half of them are mashed, which makes the soup thick and creamy.  The other half remain in bite-sized chunks, adding great texture to the dish.

Sliced russet potatoes

One of the key ingredients of Caldo Verde is Linguica sausage.  It's a smoked pork sausage, flavored with garlic and sweet paprika.  If you can't find Linguica, you can substitute another smoked sausage, such as Chourico or even Spanish Chorizo.

Chopping sausage for Portuguese sausage soup

I like to slice one sausage into rounds for a tasty garnish.  The rest of the sausages are chopped to give the soup a thickness and ensure that you get some delicious sausage in every bite.


Caldo Verde Recipe

 If you want to stick with tradition, serve the soup with brown bread or corn bread to dip.
Portuguese sausage kale potato soup
Recipe type: Soup
Cuisine: Portuguese
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 5-7
A hearty, comforting, one-pot dinner
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, for sautéing
  • 1½ pounds fully-cooked, smoked Linguica sausage - slice one fourth of the sausage into thin rounds - the rest into ¼-inch dice (Chorizo or Chourico are good substitutes if you can't find Linguica)
  • 2 cups finely chopped yellow onion (2 medium onions)
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic (5-6 cloves)
  • 4 cups low salt chicken broth (I recommend Swanson's)
  • 3 cups water
  • 2½ pounds russet potatoes, peeled, sliced into quarters lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch chunks.
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 bunch kale, washed, thick center ribs removed, and slivered (I prefer the dark green dinosaur kale but any kale is fine)
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy pot over medium heat. Sauté the sausage rounds for 1 minute or two, until they are nicely browned. Transfer to a small plate and set aside. Add diced sausage to the pot and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes, until they start to brown a bit. Transfer to small bowl and set aside.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pot, along with the chopped garlic and onions. Sauté over medium-low heat for 4-5 minutes until onions soften and start to get transparent. (Don't let them brown)
  3. Add broth, water, potatoes and salt to the pot. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to a steady simmer and cook for 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Using a potato masher, mash half the potatoes right in the pot, so you have a creamy broth with some chunks of potato remaining.
  4. Add the cooked chopped sausage and the slivered kale. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until the kale wilts and the soup is heated through.
  5. Ladle soup into bowls and top each with a few rounds of cooked sausage. Enjoy!

    This soup looks fantastic; can’t wait until our weather turns a bit cooler to enjoy it! My favs would have to be a refreshing and garlicky gazpacho with a base of bloody mix and a mulligatawny, bright yellow, speckled with poppy seeds and loaded with chicken…yum!

    ooops, make that a base of BLOODY MARY MIX!

    I’ve been enjoying a Mexican chicken soup lately; it’s basically tortilla soup without the tortillas. I will definitely be trying this soon, though. I’ve never cooked with kale.

  24. Sarah says:

    I’ve made Tex-Mex Tortilla Soup in an enamel Lodge Dutch oven! It was fantastic, and I love using my Lodge Dutch oven!!! Everything cooks so beautifully in cast iron!

    I have a bunch of kale in my fridge. This soup looks fantastic!

  27. Tatoosh says:

    I love a slow cooked beef stew the best, full of rich flavors, with potatoes and carrots. I use a bit of paprika, but I really prefer the Hungarian version. Just something special about the flavor.

    The stew above looks fantastic. And I am learning to make my own sausages. So it seems like a great one to try.

  28. Debbie Lind says:

  33. Cary Bradley says:

    This is my new favorite! I’m growing both dino and Portuguese Tronchuda kale in the garden right now! I LOVE your recipe. I’ve been meaning to try Calo Verde soup for years and I love how you mash half the potaotes for density, and also chop most of the chorizo for a bite in every spoonful. Excellent ideas!!! Thanks so for sharing!

  34. Eric says:

    My favorite is very similar to this, only with white beans and sweet potato instead of the russet potatoes.

  35. Joseph Varano says:

    So many awesome recipes I’d love to try!

    Homemade chicken noodle is my fav :)

  43. Maxwell says:

  45. Diana Bockheim says:

    I love KALE! And I would love to have a Dutch oven – I don’t even own one.

  51. Ronda says:

    Our favorite soups are bean or potato soups, usually with the addition of ham or sausage. This sausage potato and kale recipe sounds like something we’ll like also – can’t wait to try it!

  52. Amy Dillon says:

    What a delicious fall soup. I cannot wait to try this recipe.

  55. Darcy says:

  58. Mary says:

    My favorite soup is a bacon lentil packed with great root vegetables and lots of flavor!

  59. Scott H says:

    Creamy sweet potato soup!

  60. Julie Reynolds says:

    My favorite soup is cream of carrots soup, followed closely by lentil soup.

  61. Jeremy Wildeman says:

    Looks good, I would have to make it more Paleo friendly though by passing on the potatoes and adding some extra protein maybe.

  62. Diana Cote says:

    My favorite soup is spicy sausage and lentil soup, next to that is a Colombian beef soup with yuca, potato, beef and lots of cilantro… its amazing! My favorite stew is my own, i add a lot to it… even fruit in there. it’s really good, it’s rich and hearty and filling and it has a tomato-y base that i love. :) my hubby who is picky about veggies loves it. :D

  63. Lisa says:

  66. Andrea says:

    I love Beef Stew in the middle of Winter.

  67. Gabrielle says:

    Mmmmm! This looks perfect for making beef stew with carrots and onions. I’ll actually be ordering my first piece of cast iron in a day or so (a skillet) from Lodge! It’d be awesome to add this piece to my growing cookware collection! :D

  68. Stephanie W says:

    My favorite soup is Zuppa Tuscana from Olive Garden and I make a mock recipe of at home. This looks recipe looks extremely similar minus the heavy cream! Look forward to trying it soon.

  73. Cheryl says:

    someone is reading my mind…been looking for this recipe..

  74. Kristen M says:

    My favorite is potato soup but I love kale and sausage. I will be bookmarking this recipe to make soon.

  75. Peggy D. says:


  76. sara says:

    I love a good posole!

  77. Bev M says:

    2 favorites…. Beef Stew and Broccoli Cheddar Soup …. and now I think when I make this soup, Portuguese sausage kale potato soup may make it to the top of the list… sounds yummy… I might even add some sweet potatoes to it….. yum

  78. Rory H. says:

    Lentil soup on a cold rainy day!

  79. Kim says:

    I love soup and it’s hard to pick a favorite. Probably from scratch chicken soup followed by golden cauliflower soup.

  80. Peggy D. says:


    • Peggy D. says:

      Haha sorry, didn’t mean to re-post — and now I have to make the stuff! I’ll be looking for kale to make Caldo Verde, though, it sounds amazing!!

  81. greenhills says:

    my favorite is pumpkin soup!

  82. Ellie Carlisle says:

    Tomato Basil soup is my favorite soup. This looks pretty good though.

  83. Sue says:

    My favorite soup is the turkey noodle soup my mother makes after Thanksgiving. It uses the turkey bones, some of the dressing, the meat and, of course, noodles.

  84. Gary says:

    My favorite is a stew my wife created..it is Italian sausage, rice and okra. YUMMMMM

  85. My favorite soup is called Italian tortellini soup. It is easy to make and is so flavorful! My entire family loves it and the leftovers are even better!

  86. Sarah says:

    My favorite soup is a white bean soup with rosemary oil. Can’t wait to mail it this winter!

  87. Nikki says:

    I love my grandmother’s super simple potato soup – it’s mostly just water, potatoes, onions, water, and a little flour, salt, and pepper…but somehow, it cheers me up every time. :)

  88. Annette says:

    My favorite soup is Tuscan Vegetable Soup by Ellie Krieger (I double the beans, though). Just delicious.

  89. Kristen says:

    My favorite soup is New England style clam chowder. I could eat it every day.

  90. Gina Marquis says:

    I always love new soup ideas… YUM! As the weather gets cooler my favorite to bake in a dutch oven is N.E. Baked Beans. I know it is not soup but being from New England it is the Saturday night thing to do. I always have great luck using a cast iron pot in my gas oven. The delicious smell of molasses and bacon baking into the beans is so amazing!

  91. Suzanne says:

    This looks like a perfect dish for my family! A healthy & tasty combination of vegetables & meat. I’ll try it!

  92. Renee says:

    I cannot wait to try this soup. I love to cook, and I use Lodge cast iron 99% of the time in all my cooking. Every little morsel of food tastes so much better when cooked in cast iron.

  93. Beverly says:

    Over the past year I’ve gotten back into cooking with cast iron, and the difference in HOW I cook is amazing! I didn’t always like stews or soups, until lately…NOW making soups and stews in raw or enameled cast iron has retired my slow cooker! I especially like making beef stew with yummy fresh carrots, celery, onion and potato. Nothing like that smell in the house from it cooking for hours in the oven! And clean up is a snap with cast iron. NOPE I will never again cook stew or soups (or anything!) in anything else!

  94. Barbara says:

    My son-in-law has been eating a lot of kale recently for health reasons, and the rest of the family is joining him. Will definitely fix this recipe! Thank you for posting it. I am also a Lodge lover!

  95. Ella Belle says:

    This soup looks super delish! I’d love to make it because I’m trying to get kale into our diet. Unfortunately, we are very limited for any sort of sausages where I live. We do have a locally made & smoked beef & pork sausage that is pretty tasty, but it is not spicy at all. Any idea of how I could use it & still get the soup to come out tasting close to what you have made? Like, what sort of herbs or spices are in Linguica, Chorizo or Chourico that I could add? Thank you for any suggestions!

    • Linguica is a smoked sausage, flavored with garlic and paprika. I bet the soup would be delicious if you sauté your local smoked pork sausage in some garlic and sprinkle it with a teaspoon of sweet or smoked paprika. Lisa

  96. Robert says:

    My favorite stew I have ever had was a lamb stew I ate a a now closed Egyptian restaurant in Astoria, NY on Steinway St. I never new the name, as it was only written in Arabic, but I walked by it all the time and the smells that came out when the doors were open were wonderful. There are still many great Middle Eastern / North African restaurants there (Mombar is a GREAT example), but I’ve never tasted anything like this since.

  97. Karen T says:

    Yum I love soup of any kind and this one looks fantastic!

  98. Johnathan Daniels says:

    Venison chili! Only by blending chili peppers such as ancho and guerilla and a little bit of molasses.

  99. Hazel Mahon says:

    Sounds like a delicious soup – I’d love to win, and try it out:)

  100. anne harris says:

    there are quite a few soups I really enjoy. one is a beefy vegetable soup, preferably homemade, of course, with a thick slice of crusty bread.

  101. Maggie says:

    There’s nothing like (Homemade) Clam Chowder! Dad’s licensed, go dig up some quahogs, bring home & rinse, make the base using milk rather than cream, it’s killer.

  102. doug clay says:

    chili can never be a bad choice

  103. Kristyan says:

    That soup looks marvelous!! It will definitely be on the menu this fall.

  104. mary b says:

    My favorite soup right now is cheesy potato soup found the recipe on pinterest, also rachel rays stoup :)

  105. Margaret Grote says:

    Favorite soup to eat is a nice thick potato soup but to make is whatever we have left over all thrown in some homemade chicken stock!

  106. debbie says:

    Recently went back to cooking with Lodge cast iron. Not looking back.

  107. Kandace Huston says:

    Vegetable loaded with lots of Vegetables

  114. Ellen Sedberry says:

    I would love to make that delicious soup in that beautiful pot!

    New England Clam Chowder

  119. Catherine Hodge Sith says:

    Lisa, I grew up in Fresno, CA and my God parents were Portuguese which meant that I eventually met oodles of Portuguese families. I love Portuguese soups and stews. I spent my first entire in summer in Europe in 1971 and then returned for another summer in 1972. I loved Portugal and their food there. Like Basque food, it is completely unique from Spanish, Italian and French food, but is so memorable, flavorful and hearty. I love this soup recipe which is a little different from my Godmothers as she always had beans in hers. We eat a lot of kale the last 2 or 3 years and since it is a super food, I am always looking for new ways to serve it. Thanks so much! I also love my cast iron skillet, but would totally love to win their beautiful kettle.

  120. Barb says:

    Can’t wait to make the Portuguese sausage kale potato soup!

  121. Eddie Hagler says:

    I like a nice beef and potato soup. Beef is a good source of nutrition and calories and potatoes are a good source of starch both protein and starch are needed in a diet.

  122. Kelly S. says:

    What a fantastic recipe! I love that it’s a traditional dish, and I will have to try it! One of my favorite soups is Potato Leek!

  123. Mary says:

    Love west African peanut stew

  124. Cheryl says:

    I can hardly wait to try this soup. It sounds delicious! And I would love to win a Lodge pot. It’s gorgeous and practical!

  125. Regina Holland says:

    I love a good gumbo, and nothing makes a roux better than my Lodge Cast iron. I’ve had it for more than 30 years now and it gets better every year.

  126. Jennipurr says:

    We planted kale in our garden for the first time, so this recipe comes at the perfect time for us, too! It looks delicious! We have a lot of favorite soups, including potato soup and classic minestrone…which has tons of veggies and takes forever to make. I make a HUGE pot of it and freeze it, as it gets better with “age.” I LOVE Lodge, so I am really excited about your contest! Thank you! :)

  127. Nancy Leigh says:

    I can’t wait to try this soup recipe; it sounds delicious!
    My favorite soup is any kind of soup that is full of flavors. :)

  128. Stephanie Cutright says:

    I love to fix my chili or a pot of great northern beans with ham in cast iron. This pot would look soooo good sitting on my stove!

  129. Hollis says:

    I love making tomato rosemary soup!

  130. Edna Lorenzo says:

    I love anything with Kale, so tasty and healthy.

  131. Teresa Melton says:

    My favorite soup is split pea. I make what I think is a big pot so I can freeze some and then usually just eat the whole thing. But stew, well now you have my mouth watering. I will have to buy some beef and veggies tomorrow. It always tastes better the second day.

  132. BonnieBG says:

    My favorite is my mom’s Potato/Onion soup with homemade spaetzle.

  133. Nicole D. says:

    I Portuguese ancestry; never did get any recipes. This one I will have to try!!

  138. Michelle H. says:

    My family loves my homemade chicken soup and turkey mole soup.

  139. Claudia says:

    My favorite comfort soup is one my Mom made often: marrow bones, veggies and manischewitz bean soup mix. Straight from the 1950’s-60’s jewish kitchen :) I instantly regress to age 12 when I eat it!

    The Kale soup sound delicious, and perfect for a fall day. I will make it soon!

  140. Katt Lewis says:

    My favorite soup is my creamy potato and corn.

  141. Adrienne gordon says:

    clam chowder

  142. Mya Murphy says:

    I’m going to be honest, the soup you have posted looked gross and almost made me sick. My favorite soup is chicken noodle. I love the classics.

  143. Kathy says:

    That soup in that Dutch Oven sounds like my kind of heaven!!!!!!!!! And, beef stew would really “shine” simmered all day long in that pan!!! Sheesh, I’m making myself hungry! LOL

  144. M. Sun says:

    My very favorite soup was my mother’s beef heart stew. As kids we always called it bee fart stew – but that was what we always asked her to make when given a choice. Unfortunately, she never wrote the recipe down and has passed away. It will always live in my heart and on my taste buds.
    I really can’t wait to try this soup this fall as we are still really warm where I live but I am thinking about it because I have just discovered KALE. Love, love, love kale! It will be the first soup I make. I can already taste it.
    As an aside – I also am really happy that I found your website. I already have made a couple of the recipes found here and those Thai coconut bbq ribs I now make at least a couple of times a month!
