Okay pulled this off all recipe site will try it tomorrow now will omit the diced tomato for ours and they do not add ham I will
Bean and Bacon Soup

Ingredients


1 (16 ounce) package dried navy beans
1 lb ham
1 lb bacon
2 med onions
2 stalks of celery
4 tsp chicken bullion
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1 can diced tomato
4 cups ham broth

Directions

Instructions Checklist


Boil the beans in 9 cups of the water and then let sit for one hour. Drain and set aside.

Cook the bacon to your desired texture (it can be soft or crisp, whatever you prefer) and drain except for 1/4 cup grease. Coarsely chop the bacon.

Add the onions and celery to the reserved grease and bacon and saute until soft, do not drain. Add the chicken base or cubes, 4 cups water, beans, bay leaf, salt, pepper, and cloves, and simmer for 2 hours.

Stir in the tomatoes with their juice. Serve.
I also saw one that added refried beans to get that thickness and I think just a drop of liquid smoke too.

Ok, I found some really weird Summer Soup Recipes from a old SC Church Cookbook. I'll be trying one out in the summer for a dessert when watermelon comes back in season!

Just Peachy Soup
2 cups peaches peeled and sliced
1- 12oz. jar peach nectar ( I personally have never seen this in the grocery store)
1 tsp lime juice, 1/4 tsp sugar
1/2 cup fat free peach yogurt
1 cuo sliced strawberries
1/8 tsp cinnamon
Combine peaches, cinnamon,peach nectar and lime juice in blender until pureed. Pour into a med bowl, fold in yogurt and mix. Refrigerate overnight. Top each bowl with a 1/4 cup strawberries. Makes 4 bowls

Icy Watermelon soup
1/2 seedless watermelon cut into chunks
1/2 cup orange juice
2 limes or 2 T. lime juice
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup non-fat plain or vanilla yogurt
4 large strawberries
4 lime slices
freshly grated or bottled ginger(did not say how much in recipe)
In a food processor add melon,orange juice, lime juice and wine in batches, adding ginger to the last batch. If it seems thick, thin with more OJ. Stir in yogurt. Refrigerate in large bowl for 3 -4 hours. Garnish with a slice of lime and sliced strawberries. Serves 4

Look for it in the latino ethnic isle drink section. it's in an aluminum can in Colo. I think brand is Junez??

Here in WY they sell peach nectar in either the ethnic aisle or the juice aisle (where the bottled or canned juices are, not the refrigerated section). I like to add it to my iced tea in the summer.

Stirring frequently or it will burn .

LOW CARB I thought about cauliflower in place of taters. I add more ham cause hubby is a carnivore!
It's a nice change from the creamy types. Penny you could top with bacon pieces .

I have no exact recipes but have found adding soy sauce, ginger and mirin to my beef stew was a good idea even though it wasn’t remotely Asian style. Just added some complexity.
Lot's of things can go in but like you I add spices .. harissa or jalapeno.. Chorizo is a good choice in there also .. Tend more that way

I agree chorizo adds tons of flavour and a nice bit of fat. Harissa is anew one for me, the roasting must bring out the flavours more and the rose version seems particularly interesting. I am experimenting with rosehips and rosewater. Underrated.
