8 oz bacon, diced
1 cup diced yellow onions
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
2 cloves minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth
3 15oz cans Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
salt and pepper
Cook the bacon in a large pot until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel. Discard all but 2 Tbsp of the bacon grease. To it, add the onion, carrots, and celery and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another minute. Add the chicken broth and beans. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce to low and simmer for 1 hour.
Remove half the soup to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Return to the pot and stir into the remaining soup. Add the tomato sauce and 3/4 of the bacon. Stir to combine. Let soup simmer until heated through. Serve topped with remaining bacon.
My hubby and I love soup- this one was wonderful. Once you make this, you'll never eat Campbell's Bean with Bacon again!
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble,
whatever things are just, whatever things are pure,
whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report,
if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-
mediate on these things.
