At that time of year, when the temperatures are dropping and the big jumpers come out, we need something warming to eat. A hearty soup is just the right thing on a days like these, and this one is perfect.
The lardons add a smoky flavour and a bowl of it will fill most people up, so it’ll do nicely as a main meal.
It doesn’t even take long to make and can be cooked a day ahead, stored in the fridge and reheated the next day. It doesn’t get much easier than that, right?
