Brocolli and Potato Soup, with Smoked Bacon

Some cheap brocolli on offer at the supermarket, so I decided to make a soup. Cut it into florets and steam until tender. Boil semi-skinned potatoes for twenty minutes. Add both to a lidded soup pot and mash together. Add two finely chopped red onion.

Boil for twenty minutes, and then blend the ingredients together for two minutes. Add paprika, smoked paprika, black pepper, 100g of tomato puree, coriander, oregano, two dried red chillies, and some vegetable stock.

Chop a rasher of smoked bacon into small pieces, and fry until it browns. Decant the bacon pieces and the fat from the bacon to the soup pot, and stir together. Cook at a low heat under glass for at least forty minutes.

Serve with a topping of finely grated cheese of your choice - Cheddar, Danish blue, Stilton, etc, and some chunky bread. Delicious!
