Stove-Top

  • 1. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat.

Add the broth and lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Simmer over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
    2. Remove about 1/2 cup of the potatoes from the soup and either mash or puree them in a blender, then sir them back into the soup along with the kale, milk, and Manchego. Cook until the kale is wilted, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat.
    3. Serve the soup topped with fresh oregano, if desired. Enjoy with crusty bread.
