Carrot & Cumin Soup

It is too easy to buy ready made fresh soups now and yet nothing tastes as good as homemade soup. Hope you like this one.

YOU WILL NEED:
1 small pack of pancetta bacon
1 medium size red onion diced
6 medium size carrots, peeled and diced
3 medium size potatoes, Maris Piper or King
Edwards, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon cumin seed and half teaspoon
ground cumin
1 vegetable stock cube
Flat leaf parsley
Single cream to swirl
Salt and pepper to taste

In a heavy based pot fry the pancetta and onion for a few minutes, then add the potatoes, carrots and cumin.

Cook on a low heat until soft (you may need to add a little of your stock if mixture becomes too dry). Once the vegetables are almost cooked add the stock (about 2 pints). Allow the soup to simmer for about 15 minutes and then blend. The soup should be quite a thick consistency.

Serve with a swirl of cream and a little chopped flat leaf parsley, and of course your favourite crusty bread.
