The weather has suddenly got quite cold here in Sydney, winter is almost here which in this house hold means soup weather! You can’t beat a delicious homemade soup to come home to and it’s a great way to get the kids veggie quota in.

This recipe is really simple, and thanks to the bacon has a lovely sweet, smoky flavour, and you can make it as creamy or not creamy as you want it to be. And to top it off what could be better than some cheesy bread for dunking?  Scrummy!

INSTRUCTIONS

Fry the bacon in a large soup pot over medium low heat until bacon starts to get crispy and browned, about 5-8 minutes.

Add the carrots, onion, and garlic to the bacon in the pan; saute for 5-10 minutes until the vegetables are very aromatic and tender.

Add the tomato paste – stir for a few minutes until you can see/smell the tomato paste starting to brown and caramelise. Add the flour and stir for a minute or so.

Pour the tomatoes and their juice into a bowl and crush them with your hands. Add the stock, thyme, bay leaf, and tomatoes to the soup pot. Simmer for 30 minutes. Puree in batches and return to the pot. Add the cream if you want.
