  • 1 (16 ounce) package Portuguese chourico sausage, diced
  • 2 potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 head cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 (15 ounce) can mixed vegetables, drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons water (optional)
  1. Place the water, chourico, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, onion, celery, canned vegetables, parsley, garlic powder, celery salt, and red pepper in a large pot. Bring to a simmer over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer the soup until the vegetables are tender, about 40 minutes. If soup is too thin, stir in cornstarch dissolved in water to thicken.
