Irish Bacon And Cabbage Soup

Ita

"This is a wonderfully simple chunky soup. I use good quality Irish back bacon but if you can't get this, it tastes equally good made with pancetta. The dark green colour of the cabbage alongside the tomatoes gives the soup a beautiful colour."

The broth was very salty to me. I used the pancetta and it was stringy. I'd advise if using pacetta to cut it up in small pieces. It isn't a dish I'd make again or feel comfortable serving to d...

We loved this soup. Used regular bacon and cabbage since that's what I had leftover. One change is that it takes a bit more chicken broth and/or water.
