1 stalk of celery

2 garlic cloves

1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra to serve

550g floury potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes

1l chicken or vegetable stock

8 rashers streaky bacon

200g savoy cabbage, chopped

Add the onion, carrot, celery and garlic to a food processor and chop.

Heat the oil over a medium heat in a large saucepan.

Tip in the vegetables and potatoes, season well, then lower the heat and cover the pan.

Gently cook for about 5 minutes until they begin to soften, then add the stock, increase the heat and bring to the boil.

Simmer for 5 mins more, or until all the vegetables are tender.

While the soup is cooking, grill the bacon until crisp, then cut into thin strips. 

Whizz the soup in the food processor until smooth, then pour back into the pan and add in the cabbage.

Simmer for a few minutes until the cabbage is  tender, then season to taste and serve sprinkled with bacon.
