I love making soup. It is such a great way to warm the house as well as our tummies. When I was at the market yesterday I saw these beautiful shallots and thought SOUP!
So I grabbed them and a few bulbs of garlic and headed home to get to work.
What you Need:
2 Garlic Bulbs
6 Shallot bulbs
6 Cups Chicken Stock
Pancetta or Bacon
What To Do:
In a large pot heat the chicken stock. Once the garlic and shallots are cool enough handle, squeeze them to get the flesh out of their shells. Add them to the stock and simmer.
Working in small batches, put the soup into a blender and puree.
In a separate pan, cook the pancetta. Place the pancetta in the soup and enjoy.
I like to freeze my soups in single servings. Usually about 2 cups per serving.
