Making soup with beans and potatoes:

Step 1: preparing a gas station.

Have your own beans grown in the garden? Fine. Then it must be filled with water and let it soak. This process can take several hours, so it is better to take care of beans in advance, soak in the evening, and cook soup in the morning. Or soak in the morning - at lunch to start cooking. How much to take dry beans? About half a glass or a little more. What water is needed? You can use cold and boiling water. The result will differ only in the time of the lock. Boiling water is naturally faster. If you have canned beans - even easier. We open the cans, dump their contents on a colander - and let the liquid drain. In the meantime, we peel the onions and garlic, chop them and dump them into a pan with a thick bottom. There mustard seeds and olive oil. Let them cook for about three minutes. Naturally, you can use the oil, ordinary, vegetable. But the taste will be different. When everything is fried, add tomato paste there and mix well.

Step 2: boil the soup.

We send our beans to a saucepan with dressing, pour all this with meat broth and let it boil for about ten minutes. In the meantime, peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Are you done? There it is, in the pan. And let it cook. How long? About 15 minutes.

Step 3: fry the bacon.

First of all, cut it into thin strips. Melt the butter in a pan and fry the bacon to form a delicious crispy crust on it. Ready bacon does not hurt to lay on a paper towel. Let it take in excess fat. And you can not do this. As you like more.

Step 4: bring everything to mind.

Shortly before cooking, add sour cream, salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce to the soup. It remains to pour the soup on plates, dip strips of fried bacon into it from above. If you want, you can also greens there too. It turned out a thick nutritious soup, which your home-cookers will surely enjoy. Enjoy your meal!
