Seasonal and Local ~ Savoy Cabbage & Potato Soup w/ Bacon {winter fav}

Potato & Savoy Cabbage Soup with Bacon

A seasonal, local (Pacific Northwest) hearty soup with that takes just 20 minutes to make. 

I double this recipe for my hungry family and it still never seems to be enough. It's such an easy uncomplicated recipe, its okay if its gobbled up in an hour. :)



1 onion
1 carrot
1 celery stick
2 cloves of garlic
1 to 2 tbsp olive oil
4-6  small peeled and cubed potatoes (I used yukon golden)
2 cups or so - chicken ( or vegetable stock)
8 strips of bacon - cooked crispy (leave out bacon if you want it to be all veggie)
1 medium savoy cabbage
(I sometimes add a bit of butter as well at the end)
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Chop the onion, carrot, celery and garlic in a food processor. Heat the oil over a medium heat in a large saucepan. Add the vegetables and potatoes, season well, then reduce the heat and cover the pan. Gently cook for about 5 mins until starting to soften, then add the stock, turn up the heat and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 mins more, or until all the vegetables are tender.
  2. While the soup is cooking, grill or fry the bacon until crisp, then cut into strips. Shred the cabbage, discarding the core.
  3. Put the soup in the food processor until smooth, then return to the pan and add the cabbage. Simmer for a few mins until the cabbage is just tender, then season to taste and serve scattered with the bacon.
