This Carrot and Bacon Soup is definitely not your run-of-the-mill everyday soup – it’s the next level! Packed with sweet carrots and topped with crunchy salty bacon, its the perfect salty-sweet combination.

I need to have a twist in my soups for me to really enjoy them and this recipe definitely has it. Creamy, smooth carrot soup, with hints of garlic and onion and chunks of streaky bacon stirred through, it’s amazing with a big hunk of crusty bread and a drizzle of cream on top. And once you’ve cooked the bacon, it’s a quick and easy recipe to follow! Try it for yourself!
