Portugese Kale Soup, serves 6-8

1 cup canned small white beans
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1 Tablespoon chopped garlic
12 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 pound chorizo sausage (or sub turkey sausage or kielbasa), cut into ¼” slices
1 pound kale, washed, stemmed and coarsely chopped
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar, or more to taste
3 cups cubed potatoes

In a heavy-bottomed stock pot, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion for 3 minutes over medium heat.  Add the chopped garlic and sauté for 1 minute more.  Add the beans and the chicken or vegetable stock and bring to a boil.  Gradually reduce heat to medium-low and add the chorizo (or sausage of choice) and cook gently for 1 hour.  Add the kale, salt & pepper to taste, vinegar and cubed potatoes.  Continue cooking for 1 hour more, stirring often.  Adjust the seasonings and serve with crusty bread.  Leftovers are always delicious.
