Must Try Pea Soup With Bacon

I LOVE pea soup, always have. I grew up with the stuff in a can and never looked back. That is, until I realized that canned soup is pretty much terrible for you. Too much salt and preservatives, but that taste, I just didn’t wanna give it up.

So I tried my own version and bam. Below is the recipe I created and it is so good. I couldn’t believe I nailed it on my first try but yum. Enjoy!

Pea Soup with Bacon

  • 5 pieces bacon
  • 1 cup peas, frozen
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon celery salt
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 25 ounces chicken stock

Brown bacon to your preferred crispiness and set aside. Add the chopped carrots, celery and onion and cook for about 5 minutes on medium heat.

In a large soup pan, add the cooked vegetables. Mix in the peas and salt, pepper and celery salt. Stir and add the chicken stock and cook for about 20 minutes on medium low heat.

Using an immersion blender or regular blender, blend soup for a couple of minutes until it is a (small) chunky liquid.

Crumble bacon and sprinkle on top.
