I really enjoyed this work lunch – bacon hock and lentil soup made by my younger sister Juji, which I ate with leftover mini pies.
I microwaved the bacon and egg and caramelised onion pies, so they were kind of floppy and chewy. But they smelled glorious and were still a surprisingly tasty companion to the soup.
The soup was fantastic! Lots of chunks of bacon hock, with lentils, carrots, potato, cabbage and celery. The bacon hock and lentils gave the soup a very pea and ham-flavour and texture, which I love – I hope if Juji makes this soup again, she’ll set some more aside for her sister! :-P
