Bacon Soup

I found this recipe in the French Metro newspaper.

  • 3 large potatoes, diced
  • 1 large leek, cut into slices
  • 2 carrots, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 9 cups water or chicken broth (we used a combination of the two)
  • 150g bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup 15% cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste

1. Place all ingredients in a large pot and bring to boil. Cover and let simmer 1 hour.

2. Use an immersion blender to chop everything up. Let simmer another 15 min.

Verdict: We didn’t really like this soup. It didn’t have much of a taste to it. Maybe it called for too much water, washing out the taste? I’m not sure.
