Hearty Black Bean Soup

1 lb. nitrate- and nitrite-free organic bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 large onions
2 medium carrots, diced small
2 cloves garlic
4 (15-oz.) cans organic black beans, drained
4 cups organic chicken stock
sea salt, to taste
sour cream (optional)
fresh cilantro, diced (optional)

In large pot over medium heat, cook bacon until slightly crisp. Remove excess grease. Add veggies; cook until soft, about 15 - 20 minutes. Add garlic, beans, broth, and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Garnish with sour cream and cilantro if desired.

This tasted better than I expected it would! :)
