Kid-Friendly Soup

• 09 December 2008

My kids are pretty good sports about eating all the new recipes I'm constantly presenting to them, but it isn't every night they are begging for "seconds" and even "thirds". I guess that's what I get for being a somewhat adventurous cook :)

Last night I made this hearty recipe and they couldn't get enough...and as an added bonus, Mommy enjoyed it too. The fresh, simple, well-chosen ingredients make it a meal sophisticated enough for adults, especially with the addition of a good artisan sourdough bread and a green salad (skip the cheese toasts). The only change I made to the soup recipe was to pre-cook my bacon in the microwave. This made it so I didn't have bacon drippings to saute with the vegetables so I substituted olive oil instead. You can also make this recipe ahead and reheat before serving, making it ideal for a cold, winter night.

my only question is why skip the cheese toasts? not so good - or to make more healthy?
