A friend gave me this very simple recipe. I have yet to try it.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Soak beans overnight.
  2. The next day -
  3. Cook bacon until crisp. Dry with paper towels. Slice into small pieces. Set aside.
  4. Put 1/2 cup of beans aside. Put the rest of the beans in a pot of fresh water with the onion, carrot, and celery.
  5. Put the half cup of beans in the blender for 30-60 seconds. Put in pot with the rest of the mixture.
  6. Bring to a boil.
  7. Add bacon.
  8. Cook on medium heat for 1 hour 15 minutes, or until beans are soft.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve.
  11. **If you want to make the soup a little thicker, you can use a manual potato masher to mash the beans before beginning to cook them (just as you put them into the pot of fresh water for cooking).
