Welcome to Fast2eat! If you’re looking for easy-to-prepare, nutritious, delicious, and Fast-2-eat recipes, then you’re in the right place.

Did you know you don’t have to spend time peeling and cutting potatoes to enjoy a delicious hot bowl of creamy Kale potato soup (AKA Caldo Verde)?

Caldo Verde, a potato and kale soup from Portugal, is a go-to recipe when the weather gets cold outside or for lazy rainy days, when you want something hearty and comforting but don’t feel like putting in a ton of effort.

It’s made with a few simple ingredients, it takes all of maybe 10 minutes of prep work, and it’s ready to eat just less half an hour later. Oh, and it’s all made in a single pot, too. And did I mention delicious? It’s really delicious.
