Caldo gallego in Spanish (or simply caldo in Galician), literally Galician broth, is a traditional soup dish from Galicia (Spain).[1]

Ingredients include repollo (cabbage), verzas (collard greens), grelos, or navizas (sweet turnip greens); potatoes; white beans; and unto (lard). Additionally it can contain fatty pork, chorizo, ham, or bacon (compango).

It is served hot as a starter, often as part of xantar (lunch), and sometimes dinner. Traditionally it was usually served in cuncas (earthen bowls).


Depending on the availability of seasonal ingredients there are several variations:

  • Caldo branco includes chickpeas and beans.
  • Caldo chirlo or vigueiro
  • Caldo de castañas uses chestnuts
