Purslane, which is an edible weed, is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and perfect in this Portuguese Purslane Soup with Alentejo Bread. With its lemony, tart taste, it pairs well with the tomatoes, potatoes, garlic and goat cheese. Alentejo bread is a dense bread with lots of flavor for dipping into this hearty, healthy soup. Have it on a cold winter day, or wind down at the end of a long week with this guaranteed comfort food.
