Keep a close eye on the pota­toes so you don’t over­cook them—as soon as a par­ing knife in­serted in the cen­tres of the pota­toes slides out eas­ily, they’re done. Gar­nish the soup with freshly grated Parme­san, if de­sired, and serve with lemon wedges.

half bunch (about 500 g bunch) rapini

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, chopped

¾ cup chopped dry-cured chorizo sausage

700 g yel­low-fleshed pota­toes (about 5),

peeled and cubed

4 cloves gar­lic, minced

1 tsp sweet pa­prika

¼ tsp hot pep­per flakes

3 cups sodium-re­duced chicken broth

4 tsp lemon juice

½ tsp salt

pinch pep­per

Trim ½ inch from ends of rapini stems; cut rapini cross­wise into thirds, sep­a­rat­ing leaves and stems. Set aside.

In saucepan,Dutch oven heat or oil large over heavy-bot­tomedmedium heat; cook onion and sausage, stir­ring of­ten, un­til onion is be­gin­ning to soften, about 2 min­utes. Add pota­toes; cook, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally and adding up to ⅓ cup wa­ter as needed if pota­toes be­gin to stick to bot­tom of pan, about 8 min­utes.

Add gar­lic, pa­prika and hot pep­per flakes; cook, stir­ring, un­til fra­grant, about 1 minute. Stir in broth and 3 cups wa­ter; bring to boil. Re­duce heat, cover and sim­mer, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally, un­til pota­toes are ten­der, about 15 min­utes.

TIP FROM THE TEST KITCHEN

Prep­ping pota­toes ahead of time? Sub­merge them in wa­ter af­ter peel­ing their skins. That way, the flesh won’t ox­i­dize and turn brown.
