Don't call this Caldo Verde, or your Portuguese grandmother will tell you that the broth should only be made of potatoes and the sausage should only be chorizo. That's okay. It doesn't need to be authentic -- it just needs to taste great. And boy does it. Filled with deep green kale (of the I-bought-it-but-now-what? variety) and skin-on spuds, this is soup at its most delicious and nourishing best. And the bites of smoky sausage will appeal to even the smallest skeptics.

This is the quintessential one-pot meal. Creamy, smoky, sweet, it's a sure winner. As far as children are concerned, corn is less a vegetable than a kind of honorary pasta: its only real flavor is a kind of bland, Frito-y sweetness, and it also benefits from summery associations with picnic tables, long, late twilights, and dripping butter. This soup can also be deliciously meatless -- just sauté the onions in a knob of butter and proceed with the recipe. You could even try grating a little smoked cheddar on it.

Served with bread and a salad, it makes a perfect light dinner.
