This is another family favorite. It makes a BIG batch, so there are usually lots of leftovers. I love this soup mix. It’s chock full of good stuff (lentils and barley, anyone?), and the kids think it’s awesome because it has tiny alphabet pasta in it. It is yet another highly customizable recipe because you can add (or not) whatever meat or veggie you like, or don’t add any meat and it’s vegan! I just so happened to have recently discovered pre-cooked bacon, and I think I’m in love. I have even seen it in organic form (VERY pricey!), although what I used is not so healthy. As a bonus, this stew is SOUPER easy to make, so let’s get on with it! 😀
You will need:
1 package Bob’s Red Mill Vegi Soup Mix
1 meduim onion, diced
1 pack of bacon, cooked and chopped up
4 quarts water
Organic Better Than Bouillon vegetable base
Put the water in a big pot, turn it on to boil.
Add 1/4C + 1TBSP + 1 tsp (yes, really) bouillon base, gently whisk in.
Add soup mix, stir.
Add diced onions and the chopped-up, cooked bacon.
Simmer for 30-45 minutes; careful not to overcook or the pasta will be mush.
Serve with cornbread or biscuits. 🙂
