No one said that the tomato in a BLT had to be sliced. In this version, crushed tomatoes form the base for a quick soup.

Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon, crisply-cooked
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 14 1/2 oz can chicken broth
  • 1 15 oz can cooked white beans, (cannellini or navy)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup leaf lettuce, shredded
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

Directions

  • Coarsely crumble bacon & set aside. In 2-quart saucepan, stir together tomatoes, broth, beans and seasoning. Bring to a simmer; stir in vinegar. In small bowl, toss together lettuce & basil. Ladle soup into large soup plates or bowls; garnish each serving with crumbled bacon and lettuce & basil.
