Recipe for bean and bacon soup that uses non-starchy beans and homemade bone broth and so is low carb and gut healing diet friendly.
Chop and steam carrots until soft.
Add steamed carrots to the broth and water in a large pot.
Add crumbled bacon, cooked navy beans and minced garlic.
Simmer for 10 minutes.
Puree with handheld blender right in the same pot or serve chunky style if desired.
Add sea salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with a dollop of homemade sour cream or creme fraiche on top.
When room temperature, refrigerate leftovers. Freeze what you won't use in 4 days.
