Method

about 1 hour
 

1. Heat the oil in a large pot and stir-fry the onion until fragrant. Add the leeks and stir-fry until soft. Add a third of the bacon and stir-fry for 5 minutes.

2. Add the stock and bring to the boil.

3. Drain the peas and add to the pot. Add enough hot water to cover the peas completely. Cook over medium heat for 35-45 minutes or until the peas are soft. Stir occasionally and add water as needed.

4. Remove from the stove and blend with a stick blender until smooth – or keep it chunky if you prefer. Season with salt and pepper.

5. To finish: Pour boiling water over the frozen peas and set aside until needed.

6. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the rest of the bacon until crispy. Add the garlic, cayenne pepper, paprika and thyme and stir-fry until fragrant.

7. Spoon the soup into bowls. Drain the peas and sprinkle over the soup. Top with the spicy bacon mixture and season with more salt and pepper if needed.
