      I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian and my holiday meals are a bit different. For Chanukah, I make latkes with sour cream and applesauce accompanied by Granny Smith apple slices dipped in honey (or I show up at a friend's house just in time for dinner ;-) On Christmas Day, dinner consists of sweet potato soup, a butternut squash stuffed with cranberries and oranges baked until tender, yams with a bit of healthy margarine, coarsely mashed red potatoes with honey mustard, stuffed celery, black olives, mixed nuts and wassail to drink. Naturally, there are plenty of leftovers and none of my guests seems to miss the meat.

      This is a Portuguese soup has loads of yummies and you can make it as healthy as you would like by adding more veggies.

      1 tablespoon olive oil
      1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
      1/2 cup diced onions
      1 bunch kale, stemmed and roughly chopped
      6 ounces chopped chourico (spicy Portuguese sausage), or chorizo
      3 bay leaves
      2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
      2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
      6 cups beef stock
      6 ounces diced tomatoes
      10 ounces diced potatoes


      In a large stock pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, onions, and cook for 5 minutes. Add the kale, chourico, bay leaves, parsley and thyme and mix well. Add the beef stock, and tomatoes. Bring the soup to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes.

      Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring salted water to a boil and add the diced potatoes. Cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and add them to the soup.

      Remove the bay leaves and serve hot.

      you can add more veggies if you like at the same time you put in the tomatoes!
