Hearty Vegetable Bacon Soup (Gluten-Free)

For many years now, every winter I've made this vegetable bacon soup that is so rich and hearty it resembles a stew. Savory bacon, chunky vegetables, beans, Parmesan rind and chard deliver big, bold flavors. This recipe owes a debt of gratitude to Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa's, Winter Minestrone recipe for the inspired addition of pesto.

  • Olive oil
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 24 ounces canned or boxed chopped tomatoes
  • 8 ounces fresh chard, stalk removed, chopped
  • 15-ounce can navy beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 ounces pancetta, or quality bacon ½-inch-diced
  • 3-4 carrots, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cups peeled butternut squash, diced into ½-inch cubes
  • 5 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons pesto
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 ounce piece Parmesan cheese rind
  • 1 fresh rosemary sprig
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, as desired

Directions:
In a large, heavy soup pot, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat

Add pancetta and cook over medium-low heat until lightly browned.

Add shallots, carrots, celery, squash, garlic, and thyme and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about ten minutes, until the vegetables begin to soften.

Add Parmesan cheese rind, tomatoes, 6 cups of the chicken stock, the bay leaf, rosemary sprig, 1 tablespoon salt, and 1½ teaspoons pepper.

Bring pot to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.

Discard the bay leaf and rosemary sprig.

Add the beans and heat until simmering.

The soup should be nice and thick. If it’s too thick, add more chicken stock. If you want it thicker, let it cook a bit longer.

Add the chard and cook until the leaves are tender. Stir in the white wine and the pesto.

Salt as needed.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, drizzle with olive oil, and serve hot.

Hey Palmtrees450, You are not alone. I am going through the exact same thing right now. I thought it was gone but unfortunately I ate something else that has triggered it again. After reading another article on here I am starting to think it is rice...yet one more thing to eliminate from my diet, have already given up dairy and corn, now rice. I have super high anxiety. Doesn't matter who it is or what is said I am over emotional and really struggle in day to day functions even down to just folding a basket of laundry. I do have Xanax but that doesn't even help anymore. I have actually stopped taking it because of that. Only thing that helps is time, rest and drink plenty of water. The rest helps me more because then I get to be still and not think about anything. Hard to function when you have what feels like 15 people in your head at one time talking to you but it is only your thoughts rushing through your mind. I truly hope you feel better soon. Just be cautious out there. Even down to making sure your kitchen is clean and that all of your utensils, plates, pans, etc. are washed extremely well as sometimes I feel like this is where some of my problem comes in at but I haven't figured all of that out yet.

He may need to make a diet change for his diverticulitis. But you can't diagnose Celiac that way. If it were me, I would try another doctor. Is one doesn't sound very good. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

This sucks, I want to add to what Knitty Kittty said. We are the Niacin warriors on this board. Here is a long but informative thread that talks about where others' have discussed this topic exhaustively. I also recommend this thread where Knitty Kitty talks about how Niacin helped her itching associated with a DH rash. I hope this is helpful. posterboy,

Yeah I think it has something to do with our overly aggressive immune systems. not gotten virus sick in over 2 years despite being around people who are sick, sorta miss getting sick cause of a virus instead of getting sick cause I ate something that makes me throw up.

How frustrating that they did not do blood tests for celiac! Serpl mcnc is mass concentration in serum or plasma. So as cycling lady said, just checking your immune system.
