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.
- 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
- 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.
