Portuguese Bean Soup Posted by: Pomai of Tasty Island Course: Soups/Local Grinds Portuguese Bean Soup (Sopa de Feijao) is another Hawaii favorite that can often be found at local eateries as the soup of the day or as a regular menu item. This is comfort food at its best. http://tastyislandhawaii.com/2007/05/28/portuguese-bean-soup/
This is the Portuguese Bean Soup that is sold at the annual Punahou Carnival which is always held in February. It it thick, and delicious! I found this recipe in the Honolulu Starbulletin and have used it with a large ham bone (leftover from Easter dinner) instead of ham hocks. Also, in Hawaii, we can find Portuguese sausage which is the same as linguica sausage.
