  • Place bacon in a stockpot and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels and reserve the grease in the pot.

  • Cook broccoli stems, carrots, celery, onion, and coconut oil in the pot over medium heat until softened, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add flour; stir for 2 minutes. Pour in stock, beans, mustard, salt, cayenne, and black pepper. Reduce heat to a simmer; cook until flavors blend, about 10 minutes.

  • Fill blender halfway with the soup. Cover and hold lid down with a potholder; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend until smooth. Pour into another pot. Repeat with remaining soup. Add the reserved broccoli florets and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes. Dice the bacon and sprinkle over soup.
