Bacon soup is the perfect hearty lunch or light dinner especially in cold weather. Try a recipe for potato and bacon soup or bacon soup with cauliflower.
This soup has a very creamy consistency but is completely dairy-free except for the optional garnish of sour cream. Feel free to play around with the amount of carrot, onion or celery, garlic to your taste. This soup can be made the day before and reheated.
This chowder is better than any pea and ham soup you could ever make. If the bacon bits you buy are a little chunky, cut them into smaller pieces. If you can't find smoked bacon bits, regular bacon bits are fine, smoked just provide a richer flavour.
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.
This is a tried and true pumpkin soup recipe. A thick soup almost a puree is a meal in itself, ideal with just some bread on the side. You can give or take with listed ingredients to your liking. Play around as you come to the final stages of soup; add a bit more sugar or curry powder etc.
This is a great "winter warmer" soup that really goes down well. It has a great taste and is so much healthier than tinned soups with the additives, preservatives,artificial flavours etc. It's a winner everytime in my home!
