I have alot of that green soup leftover that I made yesterday. Look for the recipe (Portuguese Caldo Verde-Green Soup on this blog). I'm going to tell you how to turn that soup into a hearty white bean and collard green soup. It's so simple. Just heat up the soup in a large soup pan, then add:
1/4 pound of cooked elbow macaroni
1 can of cooked progresso white cannelini beans
1 cup Sliced cooked Chourico sausage, or Italian hot Sausage
1 tsp parsley flakes
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
Salt & pepper to taste
This soup has all the protein, iron, vitamin K and potassium you need, so I bought a loaf of garlic bread at the supermarket, heated it up in oven for 10 minutes and served it with the soup.
You don't have to go out for takeout. You can have dinner ready in 15 minutes.
