This was a lovely lunch dish – hearty and healthy and absolutely delicious!
KUMARA BACON AND CHILI SOUP
150 grams of Canadian bacon, chopped
100 grams of onions, diced
1 kg of kumara, peeled and cubed
2 litres of chicken stock (I like a thick soup, so didn’t add all of the stock to mine)
100 ml coconut milk
1/2 to 1 teaspoon chili paste
salt and pepper to taste
Place the bacon and onion in a saucepan and stir over low heat for 2 minutes. Add the kumara and chicken stock. Add the chili. Boil until everything is thoroughly cooked. Add the coconut milk. Using a hand held blender, process the soup until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
