Description

A delicious and hearty winter soup that will warm you up on the coldest of days. Full of veggies and great served chunky or pureed.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces, weight Pancetta, Diced Into 1/4" Cubes
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 cup Diced Onion
  • ¾ cups Diced Bell Pepper, Any Colour
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 2 dashes Salt To Taste
  • 2 dashes Pepper To Taste
  • 4 cups Peeled, Finely Diced Potatoes
  • 4 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1-½ cup Shredded Carrots
  • 2 cups Frozen Corn Kernels
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream

Preparation

In a large pot, crisp the pancetta over medium-high heat until well browned on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.

Add butter to the pot. Once melted, add the onion and pepper, sautéing over medium heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Scrape up any brown bits left from the pancetta with a wooden spoon. Add garlic and saute for an additional minute. Stir in the flour and a dash of salt and pepper.

Add the diced potatoes and the chicken broth. Cover the pot, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and let simmer for 15 minutes. Add the shredded carrots and corn, cover, and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.

Stir in the heavy cream and season to taste with salt and pepper. You can serve the soup chunky as-is, or puree it at this point using an immersion blender, or by pouring the soup into a blender in batches and blending. Top with pancetta and serve hot.

Jenelle, you just made me SO happy on a night dealing with a super grumpy toddler, and a waddle to rival a 500lb duck (I’m due with #3 in 4 days, and apparently insane). You and your sister are awesome :)

funny story. My sister, who lives 1500 miles away from me, emailed me & said “You have to try this recipe”–we had made it for supper on the same night!! And both our families loved it.

this is delicious—I did use the immersion blender but only a little—it wasn’t completely smooth. I also used bacon, as there is no pancetta in our little town!
