Description

A hearty bean soup with tomatoes, sausage and bacon


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 pound beans, large white beans or baby lima beans
  • 8 ounces bacon, diced
  • 8 ounces kielbasa, sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon marjoram
  • 12 tablespoons Wondra flour (optional)

Instructions

  1. Cook beans according to package directions, or cheat like I did and use a box of frozen Lima beans or canned beans
  2. Saute bacon over medium high heat in a Dutch oven, until fat is rendered
  3. Add kielbasa and onion, saute until onion is translucent
  4. Add garlic, cook for 2 more minutes
  5. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, and marjoram
  6. Simmer 30 – 60 minutes to blend flavors
  7. (Optional) Sprinkle the Wondra flour over the soup and stir to blend. This will thicken the broth a little bit and seems tone down the tartness of the tomatoes a bit. Wondra is pre-cooked flour, so it blends easily without clumping and doesn’t have a raw flour taste.
