Directions

  1. In a large pot, cook the linguiça over medium heat until it's browned and crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove the linguiça sausage from the pot and set it aside.

  3. Add the carrots, potatoes, and cabbage to the pot and cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add the kidney beans, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, bay leaf, and the cooked linguiça to the pot. Stir and bring to a boil.
  5. Once the soup is boiling, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 30-40 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  6. Season to your liking with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Remove the bay leaf before serving.
  8. Serve the soup hot with crusty bread on the side.
