ingredients

directions

  • Heat a medium soup pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add a small amount of EVOO and the bacon.
  • Cook the bacon until brown and crisp.
  • Remove the bacon to drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Drain all but 2 tablespoons of remaining fat from pot then add the chopped celery.
  • Take peeled carrots and lay flat on cutting board.
  • Holding each carrot at root end, use the vegetable peeler to make long, thin strips of carrot.
  • Chop the thin slices into small carrot bits (or chips), approximately 1/2 inch wide.
  • Add the chips to celery and continue to stir.
  • Cut leeks lengthwise and then into 1/2 inch half moons.
  • Place dirty slices into colander and run under rushing cold water, separating all the layers so you can wash away all the trapped dirt.
  • When the leeks are separated and clean, shake off water and add to celery and carrots.
  • Stir these veggies together, adding a bay leaf and seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • While the leeks cook (until they wilt 3-4 minutes), slice the potatoes.
  • Cut each potato into thirds across.
  • Stand each potato third upright and slice it thinly(The pieces will look like raw potato chips).
  • Now adding stock to vegetables, bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat then add potatoes and tomatoes.
  • Cook 8-10 minutes until potatoes are tender and starting to break up a bit.
  • Add bacon and parsley, stirring.
  • Adjust seasonings to taste (don't forget to remove bay leaf).
  • Serve immediately.
  • Enjoy!;).

    Very good, perfect for a cold and miserable night. I halved the recipe and only used 1 slice of bacon because I wanted it to be a bit milder on the meat side of things. I didn't have celery or leeks, so I added more carrots and subbed in onions. I cut my potatoes a bit thicker and let it simmer for about 20 minutes to cook them through. I also used fresh tomato instead of canned. As with many soups, it takes to substitutions and changes quite well. I really liked the smokiness that the bacon gave, which made it stand out from a lot of other veggie-heavy soups I've made.

    Used onions instead of leeks, used fresh tomatoes, used less bacon than called for, put in extra carrots, and used Italian seasoning instead of parsley.

    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.

    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.
