Portuguese Style Soup with Spicy Sausage & Clams

    • 2 quarts chicken stock
    • 1# Isernio’s spicy Italian sausage, sliced
    • 1# clams
    • 1 cup diced leeks
    • 1/2 cup diced onion
    • 1/2 cup diced celery
    • 1 T. minced garlic
    • 2 cups chopped lacinato kale
    • 1 cup diced red potatoes
    • 2 tsp. chopped rosemary
    • 2 T. chopped parsley
    • 1/2 cup olive oil

    • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander seed
    • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
    • 1/2 tsp. ground fennel

Heat a large pot on high heat. Add the olive oil, and when hot, brown the sausage in the oil. Turn the heat down to medium. Add the spices, stir with the sausage for one minute, or until aromatic. Add the salt, garlic, leeks, onion, and celery. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the vegetables are softened. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Add the kale, potatoes, rosemary, and parsely. Simmer for about 5 minutes, or until the potatoes are almost cooked all the way through. Add the clams, stir, and cover the pot. Cook for 3-4 minutes more, until the clams open up. Ladle the soup into large soup bowls, and serve with crusty bread for dipping.
