Cook's tip: For a tasty garnish, reserve some of the chopped bacon. Fry in a little oil until crispy and then sprinkle on top of each bowlful.
Freezing and defrosting guidelines
Make the soup, then leave to cool at room temperature. Freeze (without garnishes or toppings) in a rigid container, leaving a bit of space for expansion, for up to 1-3 months. Reheat either from frozen or defrost in the fridge overnight. Once piping hot, add toppings or garnishes and serve.
