It was raining and 38 degrees out when I made this soup. Perfect weather for soup. Of course, according to Kayte, any weather is soup weather. When the weather took a chilly turn I was glad I picked soup to make this week for Wednesdays with Donna Hay. And while I only made 1/2 of the recipe I know I will make it again. It was good….. and easy.


Beef broth, potatoes, leeks, and bacon. And throw in some chopped fresh sage. That’s it. That is the whole ingredient list – unless you add the optional cream.


I did for part of it and I don’t think it really added to the flavor. The recipe is on page 24 of Donna’s modern classics: BOOK 1. Buy the book, check it out.
