Tomato Soup with White Beans and Bacon Recipe

Print Options


We've used canned white beans here for their convenience. If you want you can take this soup up a notch and use dry beans that you've soaked overnight and cooked until soft.

Ingredients
  • 1/4 pound bacon, diced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups peeled, chopped potatoes (recommend Yukon Gold)
  • 6 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (or canned whole tomatoes with juice)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 can white beans, drained
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Method

1 Cook bacon on medium heat in a large saucepan until lightly browned and fat is rendered. Use a slotted spoon to remove bacon from the pan. Set on a plate lined with a paper towel.
2 Add the chopped onion to the pot, cook in the bacon fat on medium heat until soft. Add the minced garlic and cook a minute more. Add the chopped peeled potatoes and cook a few minutes more.
3 Add the tomatoes and chicken broth. Cook until potatoes are cooked through, about 20 minutes (or longer).
4 Stir in the brown sugar. Add half of the beans to the mixture. Use an immersion blender to blend about half of the soup mixture (or blend half of the soup in a standing blender and return to the pot).
5 Add bacon to the soup and the rest of the beans. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serves 8-10. Serve with crusty bread.

We are waiting Amber, lol.

DH and I went to see a friends new property tonight. I brought Jaxson's DD's famous Pecan Pie Muffins and again they were a hit. This time I brought the recipe with me. We had subs for dinner. Yum. I had a couple of small slices of an Italian sub.

Amber..........OMG..........yumm. So simple but wonderful. I'm going to make this one this weekend. Going to friend's house in New Orleans and this sounds like a wonderful starter dish for our cooking marathon on Saturday.

No cooking on Sunday. Thats the day for the French Quarter. Can you say pig out??

I hope it is as good as it sounds!...or looks... I am going to make it for sure when it cools down. Just a perfect time for a recipe with all those green thumbs and there ripe tomatoes
Besides what isn't good with bacon in it?!!!!

You've got that right! If it has bacon in it it has to be good!
Thanks Amber, this is one soup I "will" try!
Miss you!

Boy, I am washed out from giving blood yesterday. I never got my lobstah roll today, but I did have a greek salad that I cut up the remainder of rotisserie chicken to sprinkle on top. That with a pita pocket hit the spot. However I did go out and get a triple cone a few hours ago... Maine blueberry, Raspberry Truffle, and Almond Joy with a sugar cone. BAD, BAD, BAD news!!! But SOOOOO good! lol

I really should make my spaghetti sauce and add the box of spinach to it. I'm dying to eat that with the 4 cheese/spinach ravioli I got at Stop and Shop the other day with the yummy looking steak sitting next to it (all that would be really good iron input)... but I'm so pooped. lol Maybe I'll start thinking about it with a gin and tonic and go from there. It's WAY past 5 o'clock somewhere!

I laid my ham craving to rest tonight with stacked ham sandwiches. Tomato slices the size of the bread, stacker dills, jalapeno peppers, and carved off the bone ham stacked high. I'm thinking about a repeat performance tomorrow night on a fresh sub roll.
