How To Make white bean soup shooters with bacon

  • 1
    Fry bacon in a medium saucepan over medium heat until partly done, 3 minutes. Add the olive oil, butter and shallots and sauté until soft, 6 minutes. Add the beans, sage, garlic and broth, bring to a simmer and cook 15 more minutes.
  • 2
    Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor in three batches and puree until smooth. Careful this is hot-may explode when whipped!. Return the pureed soup to the pan and add the cream, cayenne and salt to taste. Keep warm.
  • 3
    Smear the toasted bread generously with goat cheese and cut into 3/4 inch croûtons. To serve: ladle the soup into shot glasses, top with goat cheese croûtons and sprinkle with black pepper.
