Heat the Flora Cuisine in a large, heavy-based saucepan and when hot, add the carrots, onion and celery. Sweat the vegetables to remove the water content. This intensifies the flavour.
Add the bacon and fry until the fat starts to run. Stir in the cabbage and half the water. Add the lentils and remaining water, and then cook for 5 minutes.
Keep stirring the soup and add the Knorr Chicken Stock Pots. It may seem like a lot of stock, but trust me, it can take it.
Bring to the boil, then simmer for 15-20 minutes. Finish off with a dash of olive oil for an Italian flare, and stir in the thyme.
Your Bacon, Cabbage and Lentil Soup is now ready to serve. The perfect dish for winter.
