Healthified White Bean & Bacon Soup

Submitted by: DAMIENDUCKS

Introduction

I grew up eating bean and bacon soup on a fairly regular basis, but it's not the healthiest soup out there...which is why I was really excited to find a recipe for a crock pot version...I tweaked it a bit and here you have it--a simple semi-healthy soup for those cold frosty days!

    Excellent soup, I'll be making (or having Chester make it) this again! - 2/26/09

  • I used more garlic and only three cups of water and this soup still tasted very very bland to me. And there was so much of it for two people! But, like many soups, it actually tasted better as leftovers on subsequent days. If I make it again, I will experiment with adding bay leaf or other herbs. - 2/1/10
