5. Caldo Verde Soup with Chorizo

Caldo verde, Portugal’s green soup, is healthy, hearty, and super easy to make. Pureeing the potatoes lends creaminess without dairy, adding the greens just before serving keeps the flavor fresh, and our chorizo sausage adds smoky richness.

6. Chestnut Soup with Crème Fraiche & Duck Fat Croutons

You might not think of chestnuts as the base of a soup, but trust us, this works. In this recipe, sweet chestnuts are slowly simmered in an aromatic Port-enriched stock until tender, then puréed to make a luxurious velouté. Duck fat croutons dusted with porcini powder add a little earthy crunch.
