Bacon And Cabbage Soup

    45 minutes

    This is a wonderfully simple chunky soup. I use good quality bacon. It tastes equally good made with pancetta. The dark green of the cabbage alongside the tomatoes gives the soup a beautiful colour.

    1. Place bacon in a large deep stockpot or saucepan. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain off any excess fat.
    2. Stir in potatoes, tomatoes and enough chicken stock to cover. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
    3. Stir in cabbage and allow the soup to simmer for a few minutes longer before serving.
