Played around with the idea of a homemade version of the condensed version of bean & bacon soup. This is what I came up with.

This is really easy and quick to make. And perfect to warm you up on a cold winter day. It's a great way to use up leftover ham too. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Bean, Ham & Bacon Soup

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place all ingredients except wine vinegar, beans, salt and pepper in a large kettle. Simmer until veggies are tender. Add beans until cooked through. Stir in vinegar. Season with salt & pepper if needed. NOTE: If using dry beans that you have soaked overnight, put them in the kettle with the veggies..simmer until beans are cooked through.
  • 2Use an immersion blender to puree some of the beans in the pot to thicken to your desired consistency.
  • 3You probably won't need to add salt to this as there is plenty from the bacon and ham. I used lower sodium bacon and it was perfect.
