  • 4 thin slice (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 0 1/2 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
  • 2 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 1 tsp Garlic
  • 0 1/2 tsp, leaves Thyme (Dried)
  • 14 1/2 oz Tomato Puree (with Salt Added, Canned)
  • 1 medium Zucchini
  • 14 1/2 oz Bouillon Vegetable Broth
  • 16 tbsp All Natural Clam Juice
  • 12 2/2 oz Clams (Mixed Species, Drained Solids, Canned)
  • 2 tbsp Parsley


  1. In a large soup pot over medium heat, cook bacon until fat is released. Meanwhile, dice the onion and celery and mince the garlic and thyme (if using fresh thyme add an additional 1 teaspoon).  Add these to the bacon in the pan and cook 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, zucchini, broth and clam juice. Cook 10 minutes, until zucchini is tender. Add clams with their juice. Cook 1 minute, to heat through.
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Cooking Tip

Did you know that you can easily portion out and freeze soup to save for a busy night down the road? When ready to reheat, either microwave or heat up in a pot over the stove with a splash of water.
