directions

  • Fry bacon until crispy around the edges. Drain on paper towels and set aside. Reserve 1 tsp of the bacon fat, and use to saute the onion, shredded cabbage, bell peppers, and black pepper. Cook until vegetables are tender and lightly caramelized.
  • In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Add the sauteed onion, cabbage and bell pepper mixture, along with the potatoes and carrots. Reduce heat, and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove about 1 cup of cooked vegetables and set aside.
  • Use a stick blender (or a food processor) to blend the remaining mixture until smooth.
  • Stir the reserved cooked vegetables, basil and cooked bacon into the puree. (You may wish to save a bit of bacon for garnish) Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
  • Garnish with reserved cooked bacon, if desired.
  • Note: Depending on the variety of potato you use, you may need to add additional broth to thin the soup.

    Easy soup to make, but like the other reviews I thought it was lacking a bit of flavor. Just needs to be adjusted to add a little extra umph of flavor. Nothing that can't be easily fixed! Made for CRAZE-E contest Dec. '11.

    This is a very good soup with a great combination of vegetables. It was a little too bland for our taste so I added salt, garlic powder, and more basil in hopes of bringing out more flavor. I still felt it was missing something but the texture was good and it was easy enough to make. Thanks for sharing. Made for Craze-E Contest 2011.

    Very nice, warm and filling soup. The bacon is the real star here. The veggies, especially after blending, are a little one note in taste and texture, so each bite of bacon is a pleasant little burst of flavor that really stands out. The salty flavor contrasted with the sweetness of the caramelized veggies is a nice touch. Thanks for sharing!
