SFoodie: Spicy Sausage and Kale Soup

How do you say "to die for" in Portuguese?

By Chef John from Food Wishes Video Recipes

I stole this amazing soup recipe from the well-known, after-hours San Francisco diner Grubstake. It is traditionally enjoyed at 3AM, slurped while gazing at the usual wild assortment of late night characters. By the way, its hangover preventing goodness is legendary! A bowl of this after a night on the town is all you need…that, and maybe a couple aspirin. This is a wonderful and extremely easy soup that will really hit the spot on a chilly fall night. You can use any spicy sausage in this, but the Portuguese Linguisa is traditional. Here I used a Spanish Chorizo, which was very nice...

As I mention in the clip, be careful not to add too much potato. This is mainly a Kale soup flavored with the spicy sausage. The potato is only there to slightly thicken, and give the soup its silky texture. Of course, like most of my recipes, you can easily tweak this and make it thicker if you want by adding another potatoes. I really hope you give this a try. Enjoy!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
