Submitted by: DAMIENDUCKS

Introduction

based on a recipe for Balatong, but with different beans and sans fish sauce and lechon kawali...so, similar, but legally distinct? Anyhow, a great winter soup for any hemisphere! based on a recipe for Balatong, but with different beans and sans fish sauce and lechon kawali...so, similar, but legally distinct?

Ingredients

    1/2 lb. bacon, chopped, cooked, drained, 1 T. drippings reserved
    1 large onion, diced
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    3 c. diced tomatoes (with juices)
    4 c. chicken broth (or water)
    1 c. dried white beans (like navy beans), rinsed and picked through for small stones
    up to 2 c. additional water (if needed)
    1 bunch lacinato kale (or any sturdy green), washed, cut into bite-size pieces (you'll probably have about 8 cups before cooking, don't worry, it cooks down!)

Directions

Heat bacon drippings over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 6-7 minutes, till softened but not browned.

Add beans and cook, stirring, for a minute or so, then add tomatoes and chicken broth (or water). Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer and cook for about an hour, till beans are tender.

Stir every 15 minutes or so, adding more water toward the end if the mixture starts to get too dry.

Once beans are tender, stir in kale. Cook till leaves are wilted and tender, about 10 minutes.

Stir in reserved bacon bits and serve.
