Apple Bacon Tomato Soup Wed, 11 February 2004 22:54
5 slices Fletcher's bacon or turkey bacon
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 white onion, chopped
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
2 cups low-fat beef stock
1 (15.5 ounce) can pinto beans
1 (14.5 ounce) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 teaspoon bay leaf
1 medium apple, thinly sliced
1/2 cup red wine
salt and pepper to taste

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, coarsely chop, and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and saute white onion and garlic 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender. Stir in beef stock, pinto beans, tomatoes, celery, and bay leaf. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir the apple in the red wine until soft.

Mix bacon, apple, and remaining red wine into the soup mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally until well blended.

To Freeze: Freeze in a freezer safe container.

To Reheat: Reheat in a covered pot over medium-low heat, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.

Very tasty, great flavor. I'd make the tomato chunks a little smaller, I don't care for large hunks of tomato, but the smaller pieces soak up a lot of the flavor. Don't let the apples put you off, they do as the celery do, taste like the base.

4 stars! I liked it. I wasn't too sure, but it was much better tasting than I anticipated.
