Kyle is one of the smartest farmers I know, and he knows
• 2 pounds linguica Portuguese sausage, sliced 1/2-inch thick
• 2 pounds local kale or collard greens, washed
• 1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cubed • 1 medium Kula onion,
• 2-3 cloves fresh garlic
(not elephant garlic)
• 1 tablespoon Hawaiian salt • 1/4 cup olive oil or extra-virgin olive oil
• 2 quarters water or chicken broth
Sauté sausage slices for about 3 minutes to lightly brown in large pot. Set aside; leave drippings in pot.
Bring 2 quarts of water, potatoes,
onion, garlic and salt to a boil. In same pot, simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
While that is cooking, wash greens and remove center stems. Stack greens, roll up like a cigar and slice as thinly as possible. Set aside.
Remove the potatoes, onions and garlic from the boiling liquid and place into a blender or food processor, adding a little pot liquid to help form a purée. After blending, return the potato purée to the pot.
Add the olive oil and the greens to pot. Return contents of pot (broth, greens, etc.) to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer uncovered for
only 5 minutes so as to maintain the bright green color.
Either add slices of previously browned sausage into the pot prior to serving or wait to place on top of soup after served into bowls.
