About the Recipe
I discovered this soup when my son was very young, about 9-10 months. He started eating solid food when he was about 6 months old. The first vegetables were carrots and then we made our way through the usual (there are a lot of different schools of what to give a child when you start eating solids. In Poland one of the first foods to prepare is carrot, in the US they are tempted to stay around green food first).
Anyway, my son was a pretty good eater back then and I could quickly introduce different vegetables. That one time, I made so much pea puree that he would get sick of eating it, so I decided to use some of it for adults.
Since then this has become our go to autumn/ winter soup. And the addition of bacon makes it a perfect comforting food for cold days. On top of that this recipe can be super quick, especially if you have stock on hand.
Now, this version is not vegetarian but with a few simple changes (that I explain) it can also be a delicious vegetarian soup.
