Collard green, cornmeal and sausage soup (sopa de fuba)

sopa de fuba

1⁄2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tbsp. canola oil
6 oz. kielbasa sausage, cut diagonally
   into 1⁄4"-thick slices

7 cups chicken stock
4 oz. collard greens, stemmed and
   thinly sliced crosswise

2 eggs, lightly beaten
Kosher salt and freshly ground black
   pepper, to taste

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1. Heat cornmeal in a 10" skillet over medium-high heat and cook, swirling pan constantly, until lightly toasted and fragrant, about 3–4 minutes. Transfer cornmeal to a bowl; set aside. Heat oil in skillet and add sausages; cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

2. Bring chicken stock to a boil in a 6-qt. pot over high heat. Whisk in reserved cornmeal, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, whisking often, until cornmeal is tender, about 40 minutes. Stir in reserved sausages and collards and cook, stirring occasionally, until collards wilt, 15 minutes. Place eggs in a medium bowl and add 1 cup cornmeal mixture; whisk until smooth. Return mixture to pot and stir until incorporated; cook for 1 minute more and season with salt and pepper. Ladle soup into 6 serving bowls and garnish with scallions; serve hot.
