    1. In a heavy 3-litre saucepan cook bacon over medium heat until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Do not drain fat.
    2. Stir in the margarine and heat until melted. Add lettuce and saute for 2 minutes over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and heat stirring constantly until evenly cooked, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the hot water, chicken stock granules and tomatoes. Season with nutmeg and cayenne. Reheat the soup to boiling, stirring frequently. Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened. Stir in the single cream and serve hot.
