Leftover Bean and Bacon Soup (GAPS friendly!)

by Sarah Recipes, Stocks and SoupsComments: 14

This is an extremely fast and delicious soup  I made for dinner one night recently with leftovers in the fridge that needed to be used up.    It turned out really hearty and really didn’t need much to go with it except for perhaps a salad.    Dinner in less than 15 minutes .. now that’s REAL fast food that won’t wreck your evening with a headache, heartburn, bloating, or insomnia!

*This soup is also great for those following the GAPS diet as the beans used are navy beans, one of the few non-starchy legumes.

Steam carrots until soft and then add in with the broth, water, crumbled bacon, navy beans, and garlic.    Simmer for 10 minutes.   Puree with a handheld blender right in the pot if desired or serve as is for a chunky style soup.   Sea salt and pepper to taste.    Serve.
