Product Used:

Smiles

Ingredients

1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp (10 mL) dried Italian herb blend

1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and freshly ground pepper

4 cups (1 L) sodium-reduced chicken or vegetable broth

1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes

1 can (19 oz/540 mL) white beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup (125 mL) 10% half and half cream

24 McCain® Smiles®

3/4 cup (175 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese

1/2 cup (125 mL) cooked, crumbled bacon

Directions

  1. In Dutch oven or large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic, herbs, salt and pepper for 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Add broth, tomatoes and beans; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until very fragrant. Remove from heat and purée, in batches, using a blender or food processor.
  3. Return soup to saucepan; stir in cream. Cook, stirring often, for 5 to 7 minutes or until heated through (do not allow to boil).
  4. Meanwhile, prepare McCain® Smiles® according to package directions; remove from oven. Top half of the Smiles® with cheese; cap with remaining Smiles®. Return to oven for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  5. Garnish soup with bacon and serve with grilled cheese Smiles® on the side.
