Hearty winter vegetable and cannellini bean soup.
Place a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, until golden and crispy. Add the onion, carrots, and celery and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
Add the garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes and cook for about 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the tomato paste and cook for about 2 minutes, until well combined. Add the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, and Parmesan rind and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 1 hour.
Stir in the beans and cook for another 5 minutes, until warmed through. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Ladle the soup into bowls and serve.
These chicken noodle bowls are loosely based on Pho, a dish my husband and I have been fortunate enough to enjoy at our friends’ house. They do a traditional Vietnamese recipe with beef. The dish has a flavorful beef broth, topped with fresh aromatics and vegetables.
I decided to make this version for my husband who has been sick all weekend with a terrible cold. The ginger root provides a homeopathic element to the broth.
