- 1/2 cup diced bacon, uncooked
- 1 stalk celery, diced
- 1 medium red onion, roasted & diced

Directions:

  1. In a medium soup pot, over medium high-heat, brown butter, add 1/2 of the sage to the butter and cook until crispy. Remove sage and set aside. Add bacon, celery & onion to the butter. Cook until everything begins to brown (about 10 minutes) then add chopped walnuts and remaining sage.
  2. Once you can smell the toasted walnuts, add pork stock.
  3. Bring to a full boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring every few minutes to ensure the walnuts do not stick to the bottom.
  4. Carefully place soup into the Vitamix container until about half full and secure lid.
  5. Starting at the lowest speed setting, turn on the blender and slowly increase the speed until it reaches the highest speed setting.
  6. Remove the lid plug and pour cream and vinegar through the lid plug opening.
  7. Blend for 30-60 seconds or until smooth. Return to pot and repeat with remaining soup.
  8. Taste for seasoning. Add meatballs, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  9. Garnish with crispy sage.
