Zuppa Toscana (Soup Recipe)

I received a lot of requests for this recipe and thought the easiest way to share it with everyone is through my website.

Living abroad, you often find yourself craving different foods from back home (wherever that me be; applies to everyone).  Also I should mention, when I cook dinner I cook enough for leftovers so feel free to adjust the serving size.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Sausage (Hot)
  • 5 Cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Large Yellow Onion
  • 6 Cups of Chopped Kale
  • 2 (32 oz) of Chicken Broth or 3 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
  • Red Chili Pepper Flakes
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Heavy Cream (I pretty much use 16 oz)

Steps:

  • Begin with chopping your onions and garlic and placing them in a warm pot with Olive Oil
  • Add your meat (cook until brown)
  • Add red chili flakes
  • Add Broth
  • Add Sliced Potatoes
  • Bring to a boil then turn off (I usually wait a couple hours for all the flavors to blend then I turn burner on med/low
  • Add Kale (cook until soft – usually takes 40 min.)
  • Turn burner off and wait for soup to cool down then add heavy cream (make sure soup is not too hot because you do not want to burn the milk)
  • Taste and Add Seasoning

Serve with some garlic bread!

Enjoy!!

Kitchen Venting…

You live in a european country (and you are Mexican, like myself – yup I am half)… the struggle becomes so real when trying to make authentic Mexican food.  I cannot find a chili hot enough for my salsa (and yes I have tried habaneros – currently three in my taco sauce and it’s still not hot enough).  I had to vent… purely out of frustration when your food doesn’t turn out the way it usually does.

Yeme Grocery Store (Bratislava, Slovakia)

Yeme is a grocery store within Bratislava, Slovakia that has traveled a large number of kilometers to locate farms in order to prepare their concept, “quality and freshness”. Although we live next to a large farmers market, we often venture to Yeme for their meats, dairy, and their bakery. Each week they feature a specific meat and a recipe.

I highly recommend this grocery store and have attached some photos below therefore you can get a feel for this place!  Although some things may be pricier than others, keep in mind – you pay for what you get!
