This soup recipe can easily be made in a pressure cooker - bring to highest pressure, reduce heat to low, cook for 12 minutes, then allow pressure to reduce at room temperature.
You can also use lean smoked streaky bacon in this recipe.
Love this recipe! I have used cooking bacon for this and add half a teaspoon of smoked paprika part way through cooking the bacon. Gives it a wonderful hearty flavour and is excellent if you don't have smokey bacon. - 24 Mar 2014
Loved the simplicity of this soup, its a great "just like mum would make" meal I made this tonight for my friends, we are all students and we all agreed that this has to be made regularly would recommend to anyone looking for a good easy winter soup - 30 Dec 2013
This worked out really well and was delicious. Didn't take long and well worth it. - 02 May 2013
