Dice up bacon and fry large stock pot or dutch oven.
When the bacon is browned add the onions, celery and garlic . . . saute for 5 minutes.
Add Carrots and thyme to the pan and saute for another 2 minutes.

Add Beans, Corn, and chicken stock, whisk in Tomato Paste and salt and pepper to taste!

  3. My family LOVES soup Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall. My husband usually makes soup. I've only tried once in my life, and when I made it was too salty. I will definitely try this recipe though, cause you're recipes look so tasty and simple. Keep them coming! KAREN J

  8. Sorry for the lame questions (clearly not much of a cook here)...what makes a carrot a "spring" carrot, and do you add the liquid from the corn/beans as well? It looks delicious, just don't want to mess it up.

  9. HI Anonymous!!!
    I really believe there are no silly questions!!! Silly would be to do it wrong just because you didn't want to ask!!! So thank you for asking!!!
    A spring carrot is just a smaller carrot that still has the green leafy top on!! you could use regular carrots too if you can't find any, if they are really big regular carrots just use 1 or two instead of 3 or 4!!

    You should drain the beans and corn before you put them in the pot! Don't go crazy and make sure every bit of liquid is off of them, just crack the can lid and let the liquid run out then dump them into the pot!!!
    I hope that all made sense!! Don't hesitate to ask anything else!!!
    Lots of Love
