      Yum. I really enjoyed this soup and so did my kids; DH is not a fan of soups with too many veggies.. I added green onions and a bit of onion instead of leeks, omitted the bay leaf since I am not keen on the flavour and instead added a splash of beef broth and used fresh tomatoes instead of canned.

      Like a Manhattan chowder without the clams. The bacon really makes it. I doubled the potatoes to make it heartier and had to sub basil for the parsley since it was no longer good. The basil went great with it - it was a really good soup.

      I was really pleasantly surprised by this soup! I had, for some reason, expected a thick soup, and ended up with a vegetable soup with a lot of stock. However, when I tasted it, it was perfect! I couldn't believe how tasty it was. I made this exactly as posted. It was quite a unique way to prepare the carrots and potatoes, but it all works together well. Bravo! Made for ZWT6.
