"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 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 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...

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.

Very comforting dish and super easy to make. We used thick cut bacon instead of salt pork and added about a cup of beef stock. Also added some hot pepper flakes to give it some kick.
