  • Add onion to rendered fat in saucepan. Cook, stirring, about 4 minutes, until golden and softened. Stir in beans and broth and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer soup for 15 minutes.

  • Coarsely mash beans with a potato masher to thicken soup slightly (do not overmash). Stir in reserved cooked bacon and zucchini and simmer for 2 minutes to blend flavors. Stir in chives and season with pepper. Spoon soup into bowls and serve with dollops of yogurt.
