    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    I adapted this from 'The Book of Slow Cooking' by Anne Sheasby, which I borrowed from the local library. As I had to return it before I had a chance to try this soup, I thought I'd post it here to share and for future use. If you make it before me, please let me know how it turned out. If you leave out the bacon this is vegetarian.

      My husband and I really like this soup. I only used a 1/4 tsp of chili powder, as our daughter doesn't like things that are too spicy. Even with that small amount, the soup still has a kick. There was some nice fond left in the bottom of the skillet after I browned the veggies, so I poured in the vegetable stock to de-glaze the pan. The bacon garnish was also a big hit. Everything tastes better with bacon!

      I made a pot of this for tonight's dinner. Left off the bacon until it's served. Of course I had a big cup for myself for lunch. Ooh, with some fresh French bread... I made it as listed.Next time I'll probably reduce the chili powder, but it depends on what DH has to say.
