Pork, White Bean & Kale Soup

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.

Excellent soup. Substituted sweet Italian turkey sausage with the casings removed for the pork and canned diced tomatoes for the fresh. Tastes better after a day or 2.


Just delicious! My 3 year old loved it... I did not have white wine so I put a bit of red wine and a bit of white wine vinegar , I used vegetable broth, as I did not have the chicken one, and it was just prefect… Instant hit, definitely a repeat…


We just finished a double recipe of this soup! 6 men eating and there was only a taste left for me! If that wasn't a knockout recipe I don't know what is! Only thing I did differently: I added a little red wine vinager, maybe a tablespoon or two. Used regular paprika, and I made it yesterday and served it today which enhanced the flavor I do believe! Everyone said it was really good. 2 thumbs up!

Yummy. I'm so pleased this is healthy! I just used regular paprika and used 6 cups of chicken broth instead of 4. Next time I would add more wine and maybe some lemon juice at the end, per another reader's suggestion. I also finely chopped the tomatoes which was a nice contrast with the big chunks of pork and kale. Another yummy idea for next time would be to use garbonzo beans instead of cannelini beans.


Excellent! Easy to make and filling enough for dinner. I used swiss chard instead of kale (what was available at the time). I would make it again!
