Pea & Bacon Soup

Thank you to Amy Sheppard for this fabulous Pea & Bacon Soup recipe.

Serves 4 people   Preparation time 5 minutes   Cooking time 15 minutes


Ingredients

Oil for frying

6 rashers of Bacon By Nature unsmoked bacon

1 onion finely sliced

800g frozen peas

1 litre of hot vegetable stock

Salt and pepper

Method

Heat a small drizzle of oil in a large non-stick saucepan with a lid.

Add the bacon to the pan and fry for 5-7 minutes, turning regularly on a medium to high heat.

Remove the bacon and chop into roughly 3 cm pieces.

Place the onion in the pan and fry in the bacon fat for 5 minutes, stirring regularly until soft.

Add the bacon pieces, frozen peas and stock to the pan and season with salt and pepper.

Bring to the boil and simmer on a medium heat for 5 minutes with the lid on.

Blend the soup with a hand blender. I don't make it entirely smooth as it's nice to have some texture and some pea and bacon pieces remaining.
