Ingredients

  • 1 onion,diced (£0.70/3)=(£0.23)
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped (£0.50)
  • 3 carrots,chopped (£0.30)
  • 600 g dried white beans (£1.10x2)=(£2.20)
  • 300 g of back bacon, sliced into bite size pieces (£1.69)
  • Fresh rosemary (£0.45)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (£0.62/4)=(£0.15)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1.6 litre chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  • Start by prepping all of your ingredients. Dice the onion, slice the carrot into rounds and slice the celery into small pieces. Rinse the beans in a sieve and chop the bacon into small bite-size pieces. Mince the garlic too at this stage.
  • Add all of the prepped elements of the soup into the slow cooker, reserving half of the bacon. Pour the stock into the slow cooker and stir. Place the rosemary into the pot to infuse, no need to use string to tie the rosemary together, you can use some tongs to remove at the end. Pop the lid on your slow cooker and set the cooking setting to high, set your timer/alarm to 5 hours.
  • When the 5 hours is almost up, fry the reserved bacon with a tbsp of olive oil until crispy.
  • Now that the timer for the soup has gone off season with salt and pepper and top with the crispy bacon.
