Winter is soup season.  And believe it or not, our family loves soup season. The reason is that we have created some unique, flavorful soups that are exciting to eat. No canned soup at our house! This Tomato Soup Recipe is one of our favorites. It is full of flavor, creamy, and delicious. Besides being full of lots of hidden veggies, is has a secret ingredient – BACON!  As we tell our kids – everything in moderation.

In 2 TAB olive oil over medium heat cook cut up 4 slices of bacon. This part is optional, but the bacon adds a really great dimension to the flavor.

Chop up 3 stalks celery, 3 carrots, 3 cloves garlic, and 1 onion. Add to the bacon and cook until it is all mostly tender, about 5 minutes.

Now mix 28 oz (about 4 cups) of fire roasted tomatoes. You don’t want them completely smooth.
