Portuguese Kale Soup
Strip the leaves from washed kale and chop 6-8 cups lightly packed.
Drain and cut the potatoes into ½-inch slices, set aside.
Sauté onions, carrots and garlic in oil and butter, cook until soft.
Add potatoes and broth, simmer partially covered for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.
Stir in tomatoes and kidney beans, simmer 10-15 minutes.
Add kale and sausage, cook 5-10 minutes longer, season to taste.
