“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.” - by SBEARLY
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- 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.

"Last night was our first freeze of the year, and my husband said this soup was perfect for lunch. It is a very hearty, filling, warming soup. I had dried navy beans and fresh turnip greens on hand ..." See moreso I used them rather than the canned and frozen varieties. I soaked and cooked the beans first and then followed the recipe. For the greens I first chopped them before adding them to the soup--I used a gallon zip bag full and could have used more. I served the soup with homemade cucumber, squash, and beet pickles and a pan of cornbread--a great fall lunch or supper!"
"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, to wh..." See moreich I added a little bit of soy sauce and some hot sauce. The turnip greens were fresh, and I used Great Northern beans. Served with cornmeal muffins this made a full meal- enough to fill my husband up, which is saying something!"
