  • 1/2 pound dried white pea beans
  • 1/2 pound chorizo sausage, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound beef soup bones
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 medium head cabbage, chopped
  • 2 bunches kale – rinsed, dried and chopped
  • 5 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 quart hot water or as needed
  • salt and pepper to taste


Soak beans in twice their volume of water 8 hours or overnight.

In a large pot, place drained beans, chorizo, soup bones and 1 quart water (or more as needed to cover). Cook over medium heat until beans are just beginning to be tender, 1 hour.

Stir in cabbage, kale, potatoes and enough hot water to cover. Cook until potatoes are tender, 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
