Rosemary Bean and Bacon Soup

Bean and bacon soup with fresh herbs is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly evening!

For some reason, I can never remember to put crockpot soup recipes in the crockpot and inevitably, they end up being made in the stockpot. I personally don't mind this at all, but it's pretty nice to have the soup slow cook all day and the flavors meld together. This particular bean and bacon soup is more convenient to make in the stockpot, in my opinion, because you have to cook the bacon before you put it in the crockpot. And that means you are going to dirty an extra pan/pot anyways. I love the fresh herbs in this particular bean and bacon soup and cannot wait to make it over and over again!

What you need:
  • 2 to 3 cans Great Northern beans

  • Salt to taste
  1. For the crockpot: Add all ingredients into the crockpot and stir.
  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.
  3. For the stovetop: Cook bacon in a stockpot and remove with a slotted spoon. Reserve 1 Tbsp. bacon grease.
  4. Add carrots, celery, and onion and cook until softened.
  5. Add remaining ingredients plus bacon back to stockpot and cook until heated through.

I also really enjoy this Cheesy Meatball Parmesan Soup which is honestly completely different, but still a good recipe to have! I have always wanted to try split pea soup and I think this Hearty Split Pea and Smoky Bacon Soup from The Cozy Apron would be the perfect place to start.
