    so many tomatoes, so little stomach!!! Made this last night sans bacon with home made veggie stock, but slipped in some sweet carrots from local farm…delish!!! Thanks for another winner Elise!!!

    I do not cook much, unless its extremely easy,and I was craving a soup with similar ingredients that a friend made. I just finished a bowl and I feel like a gourmet cook!! It’s delicious! I omitted the beans because my daughter won’t eat anything if it has a bean in it and it’s still fabulous! I love the brown sugar flavor! Thanks Elise!! Wish I made more to share with family!!

    Just wanted to chime in on how much we enjoyed this recipe. We used garden fresh tomatoes and the last of our homegrown potatoes and some veggie stock I had made the day before. This soup was so incredibly warming and filling. We served it with grilled ham and gruyere sandwiches. A perfect fall dinner! Thanks for sharing!

    I live with a person who doesn’t eat mammals (!?) so I omitted the bacon and warmed up 1 tsp of smoked Spanish paprika with the onions and garlic before adding the potatoes. I also put in a sprig of rosemary while the potatoes were cooking and removed it before pureeing. I used dried beans and cooked the whole bag with a bayleaf and froze what I didn’t use (we’ll see how they stand up post freezing!) I measured out about 2 c. of soaked beans and added them to the pot with the tomatoes because they’d need the extra cooking time. I also salted during the cooking process because (in retrospect) everything I used was homemade and had little to no salt in it.

    Maybe this will give some vegetarians out there some ideas about how to modify.

    All in all, the soup is fantastic! Thanks Elise.

    Rather than use bacon, I sauteed the onions in olive oil, and added shredded chicken at the end. I didn’t even peel the tomatoes, and it still turned out great!
