Cuban Green Soup

SBEARLY

"This is a great recipe from Tampa, where I loved the Cuban restaurants. I had this soup in several restaurants before I found the recipe! If you have a small army to feed, you may add a few potatoes and stalks of celery. I have never done that even when serving for several teenage boys!! This soup freezes well."

  1. Place a stock pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Fry the salt pork for a few minutes to release some liquid. Add onion, and saute until translucent. Stir in the navy beans and turnip greens. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for about 30 minutes. Serve with home made pepper vinegar and a side of cornbread for restaurant-style dining.

Not having any salt pork, I kind of improvised a bit. I added some crushed garlic, a diced hot pepper, and sliced turkey bacon in with the onion. Then I made a broth of diced tomatoes and water,...

I had to make a few modifications. I started with dried Navy beans. After I soaked them I rinsed and drained them. I needed liquid so I added a pint of homemade chicken stock. I couldn't fin...

I followed the recipe to a tee and it was delish! Very comforting. Thanks.

I accidentally bought frozen spinach instead of the turnip greens but it was still fabulous! I also left out the pork for personal preference and didn't miss it at all!

I left a star off this very good soup because I believe the author may have forgotten an ingredient. To make this soup thin and look like the picture, I added two cups chicken stock and one cup...

Absolutely fantastic! A simple, filling comfort food. I am a Spanish teacher and am bringing this to food day tomorrow for my students.

I tried this recipe and have made it for friends several times. They always ask for the recipe. It's my favorite winter soup.
