Sweet potato soup

I found the following recipe in a very nice blog from an american girl and I’ve meaning to post it since I cook it because I think It was so worth it to give it a try. It actually reminded me of caldho verde (portuguese soup) one of my housemate in Brighton used to cook. Anyway, It’s sort of the same principle  (If anyone has eaten it, they will know what I am talking about) .

All you need for the soup is the following ingredients. It will serve around 4 people

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
200g of  Spanish chorizo
1 medium onion, chopped
1large garlic clove, minced
1 large sweet potatoes, peeled, quartered lengthwise, cut in pieces
2 medium potatoes, peeled, and cut in pieces
4 cups low-salt chicken broth
100 gr cabbage

Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onions, garlic and sausage to the pot and cook for about 5 minutes until tender, stirring often. Add the white and sweet potatoes and cook it until they begin to soften. This will take about 15 minutes. When they are soft, add the broth and bring to boil. Reduce heat and let it cook until the potatoes are really soft, checking on it ocasionally and stirring it. Mash some of potatoes in the pot with the masher and add the cabbage and let it cook for around ten minutes or when you think the cabbage is soft enough. Add salt and pepper and try to taste. The original recipe uses Spinach, you can try it both ways!
