Caldo Verde (Portuguese Cabbage Soup)
This is from the cookbook "Twelve Months of Monastery Soups." I have reduced the oil from 1/2 cup to 1/4 cup to make it a little more healthy.
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 onions, chopped
- 6 potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 small cabbage, chopped
- 8 cups vegetable stock
- 1 cup white wine
- salt and pepper
Pour the oil into soup pot and saute onions for five minutes.
Add the potatoes, cabbage, chicken stock, wine, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat and cover the pot. Simmer for an hour. Turn off the heat and let soup rest for 10 minutes.
