Followed the recipe exactly, but added one extra ingredient...spanish chorizo. The soup came out amazing! I think without the chorizo, it might have been a little bland. I think this soup would benefit from some extra simmer-time to allow the flavors to meld together. I can understand why it would be even better the next day.
Pork, White Bean & Kale Soup
From EatingWell: September/October 2007
Kale is matched up here with white beans and chunks of lean pork tenderloin to create a soup that's satisfying and quick to make. Smoked paprika gives the soup a Spanish flair so some warm bread and sliced Manchego cheese would go well on the side.

This was good and we'll definitely be adding it to our family recipes. The only changes I made was to add an extra can of white beans and reduced the amt of pork by 1/3. I accidentally left it on low heat and it simmered for hours after we first ate it, when I ate another bowl after it had simmered all afternoon it was incredible! It is delicious with the manchego cheese but doesn't need it at all. Enjoy
the soup was just ok. I plan to add vinegar just before serving to the leftover soup. I wanted a way to have kale that we would enjoy. This isn't it.
i followed the ingredient list and instructions, and got a lackluster soup with chewy pork. so we ended up having somethin else for dinner, and the next day i put it in the crock on low all day with some minced jalapenos, diced zuke, mushrooms, red bell pep, baby yukons, fresh thyme, lemon juice, cumin, and a dash of apple cider vin. turned out amazing. AMAZING!! i was glad for the idea tho, i've often been a little pork shy, and this finished product may have started a little love affair...
