    Smokey Minestrone Soup - Comfy Belly

    This hardy, smokey minestrone soup is big on flavor thanks to an array of vegetables, as well as the smoked salt and bacon. It’s easy to serve, easy to freeze and defrost, and goes well with a popover, slice of garlic toast, or a handful of shaved Parmesan.

    My suggestion is to go a bit overboard with the vegetables if you’re unsure because you can always add more water and seasoning. To me lots of veggies with a sprinkling of bean and bacon is a good ratio, but feel free to change the ratio or do away with the white beans and instead use diced vegetables like parsnip and cauliflower.

    This recipe was inspired by a recipe from Ina Garten.

      This soup is SO good. I didn’t have any parmesan cheese, but it it was great without it. The bacon adds a terrific flavor. I have already recommended the recipe to friends and family 🙂

      this was delicious with crusty bread. i didn’t have parm but it was still hearty. i’ve made minestrone variations many times but this smoked sea salt was perfect! i had the alder wood sea salt and never tried it in soups before. thank you for an easy weeknight one-pot meal for this time-strapped mom!

      I’ve been looking forward to making this for a few weeks now and wow, was it worth the wait. This soup is amazing! I made it with nitrite free turkey bacon and black beans. I also put the fresh spinach in the bowl and ladled the hot soup over the top to wilt it rather than wilting it in the pot.
