I know that the starchy bean liquid is added with the beans in order to give thickness to the sauce, but I am concerned about all that extra sodium. I might rather drain them and then blend up some of the beans in my mini food processor to give it thickness while also cutting out the saltiness from the liquid.

Bean and bacon soup is one of my favorite things to eat. I love to have this dish at lunch. It keeps me fueled all day and gets me through til dinner without getting hungry. I love the idea. Thanks for sharing. I want to make this soon so I can take leftovers to share at work.
