Pork, White Bean & Kale Soup

September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (140 votes)

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.

Okay

I made this for the first time the other day and followed the directions to a T. I was disappointed; I think my expectations were a little high. Don't expect more out of this recipe than what's in it. I will warn you that the crushed red pepper amount given is pretty strong. Personally, I love pork but not in a watered down chicken-broth soup. I say, save the pork for on the side and make a vegetable soup!

I followed the recipe exactly

I followed the recipe exactly but added one extra ingredient...Spanish Chorizo. I happen to have some in my fridge leftover from a party. The soup came out amazing, but I think without the chorizo, it might have been a little bland. The soup might just need some extra time for all the flavors to meld.

Disappointing

When I went to make this soup I was extremely excited. After making it however, I was disappointed. It really should be directed as a veggie soup as that's the overwhelming flavor. It needed more meat, less kale, more seasoning and more overall flavor.

Lots of veggie flavor

One of my favs!!!

This is absolutely one of my favorite recipes! Sometimes I use leftover pork, canned tomatoes, or spinach instead of kale depending on what I have in stock already and the outcome is always delicious. Thank you Eating Well!

So tasty and good for you

Easy, flavorful & absolutely delicious!

I used leftover, already roasted pork tenderloin & spinach instead of Kale. I added the pork with the beans about 15 mins. before serving & was amazed at how tender the pork had become. My entire family LOVED it! I will definitely make this again.

Little effort, big reward

Tasty, hearty soup

Tasty soup! I switched canned tomatoes instead of fresh and garbanzo beans instead of white beans. Also added some zucchini, which was good. Wasn't crazy about the kale, so I may switch for some spinach instead next time. I might try adding a little lemon juice next time too at the end.
