Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1/2 kg peas
  • 1/2 kg lean bacon
  • 4 carrots
  • 2 celery roots
  • 3 leeks
  • 4 onions
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp pepper
  • 3 pork sausages


In a deep pan cook bacon, carrots, salt, pepper, celery root, thyme, leeks with 8 cups of water. Cook on low heat for 1 hour until the vegetables are cooked properly and bacon is tender.

Once cooked remove the bacon and vegetables.

Drain the soup and serve with sliced bacon and vegetables on side.

You can serve this soup with bread croutons.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
