Tips

Add any vegetable you love! I have made this recipe with spinach and white cannolini beans with diced tomatoes to give it an italian wedding soup flare!


Directions

-Add grapeseed oil to a large stock pot.
-Brown the turkey bacon; add the onions and cook for two more minutes; add celery and cook for another minute.
-Add a bit of chicken stock (just enough to coat the bottom of the pot) to grab the brown bits off the bottom).
-Add the potatoes and stir to have the potatoes pick up all the other flavors.
-Add the rest of the stock and boil until potatoes have the desired consistency. (At this point, you can add any spices you would like. I.e. red pepper flakes, bay leaf, basil . . .)
-Add the black beans and turn the burner to low. Serve warm with salad (optional) and a slice of fresh bread (optional). Enjoy!
