The flavour of sweet yam mingled with spicy sausage gets rounded out with onion and kale. Orange and emerald colour combination is gorgeous in a bowl. Thicker than soup, thinner than stew, stoup is a full meal on its own for lunch but only half-finished without an accompaniment for dinner. Polenta, rustic buns, steamed grain, pasta or mashed potato, you decide. It’s perfect on a rainy summer day or overcast, brisk fall day. While you are at it, why not try your hand at homemade chorizo sausage?!
