BLT Soup

Super Simple BLT Soup Recipe |
This week’s theme for Sunday Supper theme is Back To School! Whether you’re kids have already gone back, still have a week or two left to go or you don’t have children at home at all, this week’s recipes are all about quick and easy. And who couldn’t use more of those? This BLT Soup is SO simple to make and filling enough that I’m guessing it will become a family favorite! It blends bacon, lettuce and tomato along with a few extra ingredients for a unique twist on this classic flavor combination. And it’s super quick–you can have dinner on the table in about 20 minutes.

The recipe I chose this week is one I actually came across at my local farmer’s market. Each week they have a table where you can pick up recipe cards that often feature seasonal produce or other foods. The recipe is actually part of the Go Texan campaign from the Texas Department of Agriculture!

And since my daughter loves the tomato soup at a local restaurant, I decided that I would try to make a version of that from scratch at home. It was a huge hit and oh so easy to whip up. Double bonus! I will sometimes pair this with a simple grilled cheese sandwich or quesadilla. Grilled cheese and tomato soup is a classic combination that is perfect for a weekend lunch or easy weeknight meal. I hope you’ll give this a try too!

Super Simple BLT Soup |

a few simple ingredients is all it takes to whip this up. If you like, you can use tomatoes you’ve canned yourself and basil you’ve grown from the garden!

BLT Soup
  • 8 slices bacon, crisply cooked
  • 1 can (28 ounces) tomatoes, crushed
  • 1 can (14 ½ ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 can (15 ounces) cooked white beans, cannellini or navy
  • 1 ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup leaf lettuce, shredded
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  1. Coarsely crumble bacon and set aside. In a 2-quart saucepan, stir together tomatoes, broth, beans and seasoning. Bring to a simmer; stir in vinegar. In small bowl, toss together lettuce and basil. Ladle soup into large soup plates or bowls; garnish each serving with crumbled bacon, lettuce and basil.
To make a vegetarian version of this soup, leave out the bacon and substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
