Kale Soup

1 large yellow onion, peeled and minced fine
1 large garlic clove, peeled and minced
4 tablespoons olive oil
6 large potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
2 quarts cold water
6 oz chorizo, pepperoni, or other dry, garlicky sausage, sliced thin
2 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Saute the onion and garlic in 3 tbs of oilin a large, heavy saucepan 2 to 3 minutes over moderate heat until they begin to color and turn glassy; do not brown or they will turn bitter. Add the potatoes and saute, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes, until they begin to color also.

Add the sausage, salt, pepper, return to moderate heat, cover and simmer 5 minutes. Add the kale and simmer uncovered 5 minutes until tender and the color of jade. Mix in the remaining tablespoon of oil and taste the soup for salt and pepper. Serves 6-8
