Pork, White Bean & Kale Soup

September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (190 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.

good base recipe, needed help to make it great

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...

easy, yummy healthy ingredients

We really liked this! A

We really liked this! A little spicy and brothy. I used cubed pork steak and a cup of petite diced tomatoes. At this time of year, tomatoes are not enjoyable, but this soup was perfect for a rainy and windy night. I will make this again.

The flavors didn't quite do it for me.

Everything smelled really good until I dumped in the chicken broth. The end result wasn't horrible, but I thought it was kind of bland.

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
