Caldo Verde | Portuguese Kale Soup, Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with Lots of Kale, and Frisée Salad With Pears and Manchego
After our all-cookie diet over the holidays, we thought a week of a few more veggies were in order. Don’t worry, this isn’t a diet plan or Whole30. Instead we have three recipes that are delicious, satisfying, and get some vegetables back in our diets. Which can only mean more room for dessert, right?
Caldo Verde | Portuguese Kale Soup: Leite’s Culinaria
A traditional Portuguese soup that gets its flavor from lashings of olive oil and a link of sausage, we liked this filling yet not to stodgy soup. Perfect for a post-blustery January walk or to stave off that cold going around the office.
Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with Lots of Kale from Bon Appetit
Sure, kale is healthy, trendy, and pretty tasty. But add some pasta and you have a dinner to happily anticipate.
Frisée Salad With Pears and Manchego from Real Simple
Salads are a great way to get a bit of freshness in the winter months. The trick is to make one that takes advantage of available greens and produce. This Frisee salad with Pears and Manchego Cheese combine slightly bitter frisee with pears, pomegranate, and cheese to offset that bite.
