1 Linguiça or Polska Sausage (Cut 1/3 inch thick)
5 Potatoes (Peeled and cut into big chunks)
2 cups collard greens
2 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 Onion (diced)
1 tsp crushed garlic
salt & pepper to taste

In a large pot add in your 2 tbsp olive oil, onion and garlic. Sauté on medium heat until just browned. Fill pot with water and add in your potatoes. Leave cooking for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are mushy. Set aside to cool for about 30 minutes. 

In another Pot sauté your sausage until golden, drain out the oil and set aside. Once the potatoes and the water is cooled place mixture in a blender a little at a time and blend well until smooth. Return blended mixture to pot. 

Turn on medium heat, add in salt, pepper, linguica and Collard greens. Cook about 5 minutes or until collard greens are a brighter green.

Serve immediately, use the other 1 tbsp olive oil to drizzle on top of each fresh bowl of caldo verde. Goes great with a nice warm piece of your favorite bread.

(Note: If your soup is too thick add a little water, if it is too thin add in more cooked potatoes)
