  • 1/2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 lb. pork tenderloin, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 medium onion, sliced thin
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped fine
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped fine
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1/2 tsp. smoked paprika (regular paprika may be substituted)
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1 (15-oz.) can no-salt added diced tomatoes
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 cups kale, ribs removed, chopped, lightly packed (collard greens may be substituted)
  • 1 (15-oz.) can white beans, drained and rinsed


  1. Heat oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add pork, season with salt and pepper, and saute until browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to plate and set aside.
  2. Add onion, celery and carrots and saute until soft and beginning to brown, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, paprika and red pepper, and saute about 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes. Add broth and bring to boil.
  3. Add kale and gently stir until it wilts. Reduce heat. Stir occasionally until kale is tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in beans and pork and simmer about 3 minutes. If too thick, add a small amount of water.
