DIRECTIONS

  • Render bacon over medium heat in a 3-quart saucepan until crisp, about three minutes. Remove bacon to paper-towel lined plate and set aside, reserving the rendered fat in the saucepan.
  • Increase heat to medium-high and add the butter. Sauté the onion and carrot for 8-10 minutes or until very soft and beginning to caramelize, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the tomato paste and continue cooking about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetable mixture, mix well and continue cooking for another minute.
  • Gradually pour in the stock, whisking constantly to prevent lumps from forming.
  • Add the diced tomatoes, thyme, bay leaf, garlic and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer soup for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove soup from the heat. Add the heavy cream and puree with an immersion blender until smooth.
  • Season to taste and serve garnished with the crisped bacon.
