Hi, I'm a soup lover too and I would love to share this recipe that was passed down from my Mom.
This is one of my favorites and as a single Dad, I can honestly say it is easy enough to whip together after a hard days work.
My soup is made with 3 main ingredients which are green collards, potatoes and red kidney beans.
The recipe goes like this:
Green collards - chopped into 1/4 inch size pieces - about 1 1/2 cups (I never really measure)
4 large potatoes quartered
1 large can of red kidney beans drained - but you can use dried beans if you know how.
Here's how I do it:
I grab my handy soup pot and fill it half full of water.
Then I add a half teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon olive oil and all veggies I mentioned above. Now bring all those goodies to a boil.
Once it boils do medium heat for about 45 minutes.
Once the soup is done I like to spruce it up with a little minced red pepper paste. About 1 teaspoon. It is also known as paprika paste.
It is a Portuguese thing, what can I say.
It's healthy, it's fast and it's simple. Awesome for everyone. Hope you like it.
Single Dad but darn good cook.
