Vegetable soup with bacon & pasta
« on: March 01, 2010, 01:58:10 am »
Name of Recipe: Vegetable soup with bacon & pasta
Number of People: 4
Ingredients:

1 onion
1 clove garlic
20g olive oil
4tsp vegetta gourmet vegetable stock (I had run out of TM stock)...or 2 Tbsb. TM veg. stock Concentrate
4 cups boiling water
500g chopped vegetables (I use a mix of carrot, celery, mushroom, zucchini)...but use what you like.
60-100g  chopped bacon
1 small tub leggos pizza sauce (garlic, onion, herb - 140g)
80g small spiral pasta
cracked black pepper

Preparation:

Place the chopped veggies into jug, and chop 5 secs - speed 4. Set aside
* I like to chop the carrots a little first, before adding the rest of the veg.*

Place in quartered onion and garlic clove, chop 5 secs - speed 5.

Add oil and bacon to onion mix, and cook 5 mins - 100c - reverse speed 1, MC off.

Mix vegetta stock with boiling water, then add into jug. Add the veggies, pizza sauce, black pepper, and pasta.
Cook 20 mins - 100c - reverse speed 1.

Once cooked, mix in some freshly grated parmesan, and serve with some chopped herbs on top if you wish

Made a crusty cob loaf to go with.....great for dunking in soup ;)


members' comments Everyone loves this recipe.

Shazzy - I added risoni instead of pasta spirals & tomato paste and some mixed herbs instead of the pizza paste.

ahoney - Made this with 220g tomato paste, 1 tsp mixed Italian herbs, corn and 2 veg stock cubes (massel).

JD - I added some of Tenina's flavour boosters - caramelized garlic paste and a cube of umami paste.

Dizzygirl - Added some curry powder for kick. 

Kazza14 -  I too added my own pizza sauce (Thermomix of course) and I also added an extra rasher of bacon which I had chopped and quickly crisped up in the microwave. I also added Risoni instead of pasta shells and added a leek with the veggies.

foodgroupie - Followed the recipe to a T except for adding another 60 grams of bacon.

knittercook - I used carrots, cabbage and frozen corn as that is all I had and macaroni pasta, 1 tbs of vegetable stock, 2 rashers of bacon.

MangoJam -  left out the pasta.  We just love it with parmesan cheese liberally applied!!

Yes, the weather is becoming cooler and soon it will be soup time again - yay!  This summer didn't seem as long as previous ones but I'm sure it hasn't completely finished yet.  Thanks for the delicious looking soup maddy - things always on hand so easy to whip up.  I made MJ's pasta sauce today and it fits the description of the leggos one in your recipe so I will be using that for this soup.

Glad you enjoyed it.
I love a filling soup.....although hubby would eat 2 big bowls, eat 1/2 the cob loaf, and then ask "what's next?"   :-))

Mine is the complete opposite.  We had a bowl for lunch with a freshly baked roll and when teatime came around DH didn't want much to eat at all.  I served him up a small piece of leftover spinach & rice pie from the freezer with salad and corn on the cob but he left half of it.

JD,  I had a bowl of this tasty and filling soup for lunch today and it filled me up,  so can understand your DH not wanting much for tea.

Ohhh yummy.  Just finished making this soup, and it is so thick and rich.  Delicious.  And worked out beautifully as I had just the right amount of "sad" veggies that needing using, a little bit of tomato paste left from something else, and finished off the last of my vegie stock concentrate.  So cleaned out the fridge beautifully too.

Thanks Maddy!

Thanks Maddy, I'll make that today. I made some pizza sauce yesterday for Pizza Scrolls, so will definitely make the soup for lunch today.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.
