Bacon + Butter Bean Soup

Soup is such a warming and wholesome meal, and can be easily frozen for those nights you need a quick and easy option. This hearty meal is packed with vegetables, and full of flavour whilst also being very economical to make. Butter beans are rich in protein, have a nice soft texture, and are mild in flavour which makes them great for babies!

I always keep bone broth on hand in the freezer which adds the depth of flavour to this soup, and is such a great and easy way to incorporate bone broth into yours and your little ones diet.

I love to serve with good quality sourdough and butter. If you want to puree for your little one, add some butter beans and vegetables with some of the tomato broth and puree until smooth. Omit the bacon if you’re trying to lower sodium. For BLW – you can cut some of the vegetables into finger shaped pieces to cook in the soup. Serve the butter beans squished, and serve the sourdough sliced into finger sized strips if choosing to offer gluten.
