    This is a hearty and tasty soup I don't like smoked bacon so used unsmoked and used smoked paprika instead I also add thyme and normal paprika and cumin it's a filling and tasty soup and it freezes really well I sometimes add chilli flakes especially when the weather is cold a nice hunk of bread and butter to dip in....heaven in a bowl! - 14 Dec 2016
