Portuguese Green Soup (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 01/28/2014 - One of the things I love most about food and cuisine is how much there is to discover. I'm always especially pleased to 'discover' a food that seems like it has been long enjoyed by nearly everyone but me. One such 'discovery' is Portuguese Green Soup.

I had a delightful version of this soup a while back, and it really stuck in my mind. This soup is perfect for a cold night.

1 quart cold water
1 quart chicken broth
10 small potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
6 ounces linguica or chorizo sausage, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 pound kale, rinsed and julienned
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 medium shallots minced
2½ teaspoons salt
ground black pepper to taste
1 can hominy (optional)

Directions:
In a large stock pot over medium heat, sauté onion, shallots and garlic in 3 tablespoons olive oil for 3 minutes.

Stir in potatoes and cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes more.

Pour in water and chicken broth.

Boil gently for 20 minutes, until potatoes are mushy.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-low heat, cook sausage until it has released most of its fat, 10 minutes. Drain.

Mash potatoes, and stir the sausage, salt and pepper into the soup.

Cover and simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes.

About 5 to 10 minutes before serving, stir kale into soup. Add hominy as desired.

Simmer, 5 minutes, until kale is tender and bright green. Stir in the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and serve at once.

Serve with toasted gluten-free bread and butter.

Thank you for your reply. I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.

LOL, re: trousers vs. pants. Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front. I also read that Vit D helps digestion; can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin. My Dr. just told me to res...

I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.

A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be tak...

Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a ...
