Swede, Carrot and Bacon Soup

(Serves 4)

500g Mixed Carrot and Swede (for Mashing) - 50p from Tesco
200g Bacon Lardons - £1 from Tesco.
1l Water - Overpriced from BWWSL
2 veg stock cubes.

Boil the water, adding seasoning (salt, pepper, herbs, etc) and the crumbled stock cubes.
Add the veg.
Bring back to the boil, cover and simmer.

Preheat a small frying pan, lightly oil and add the lardons, cover and gently fry for 5 mins.
Turn up the heat to full to boil off the excess water.
Drain off the fat, and add the large and medium-sized lardons to the soup.
Keep the small ones to one side.

Let the soup simmer for 1 hour.
Blend the soup until a few veg chunks remain visible.
Add the remaining bacon.

Stir and serve with buttered granary toast.
