If you never have made anything I have posted let this soup be your first! It was a party in my mouth and all these different flavors were invited!  I felt pretty proud of myself and it inspires me to come up with different dishes and really switch up our rotation of recipes!


8 cups chicken stock 

1 pkg turkey bacon (sliced into 1/4 in)

1/3 cup sundried tomato pesto or any pesto will do (recipe for sundried tomato pesto… See below)

1 can white beans

1/2 bunch of kale

1 can diced tomatoes 

2 garlic cloves diced

Salt and pepper to taste


1.  Add bacon to pot and cook on medium heat till browned, add in garlic and sauté for 2-3 min.

2.  Add in the chicken stock, diced tomatoes, and sundried tomato pesto, bring to a boil and simmer for 20-30 min.

3.  Add in beans and kale and simmer another 15 min.

4.  Serve by itself or with a crostini.

Sundried Tomato pesto:


1/4 cup sundried tomatoes

3/4 cup olive oil

8-9 basil leaves

2 garlic cloves

2 Tbsp nutritional yeast 

Salt and pepper to taste

Throw into food processor and pulse till combined thoroughly… Now this is something I make all the time and don’t really measure out ingredients so it’s a rough estimate of how much I use of everything.
