Rustic Potato Soup, or caldo verde, is the national dish of Portugal, and when developing our recipe, we found this rib-sticking, one-pot meal actually requires little effort. Because the garlicky, spicy flavor of the two sausages is similar, we substituted kielbasa for harder-to-find Portuguese linguiça sausage. We partially mashed a portion of the potatoes to thicken the soup, cooked the leeks and kielbasa together, then stirred them into the potatoes, broth, and kale.

Serves 4 to 6

Let the potatoes simmer in the broth while you prep and cook the remaining ingredients. Because the kielbasa is quite salty, no added salt is necessary.
