Roast Pork Soup

This well-seasoned, satisfying soup has a rich, full-bodied broth brimming with potatoes, navy beans and tender chunks of pork. It's been a family favorite for years. Served with cornbread, it's one of our comfort foods in winter. —Sue Gulledge, Springville, Alabama

    I loved being able to use my leftover pork – especially in a soup using apple juice. But my family complained the broth was too bland. I added onion and garlic salt along with oregano and then they really liked it! I used black beans instead.

    Light and yummy. Great way to use up leftover pork roast. Garnished with fresh parsley because we had no fresh basil. Will make this again.
