Sweetheart Soup with Shallots, Streaky Bacon, and Sage

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 shallots peeled and finely choped
  • 1 carrot trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and finely chopped
  • 3 slices streaky bacon or pancetta sliced into small cubes
  • 1 sweetheart cabbage trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh sage leaves finely chopped
  • 33.8 fl oz vegetable stock
  • sea salt and pepper
  • fresh shavings of parmiggiano reggiano


  • Heat some olive oil in a heavy soup pot, and add the finely chopped shallots, carrot, celery, garlic, and bacon. Mix the vegetables well, and season with salt and pepper. Sweat the vegetables until soft, adding a little water to help create steam. Make sure the vegetables do not crisp and burn by adding a little additional water, and stirring.
  • When the vegetables are soft, add the cabbage slices and the sage. Mix well. Add the stock, bring the soup to the boil and then lower the heat. Within five minutes the soup will be ready.
  • Pour the soup into warm serving bowls and then sprinkle fresh Parmiggiano reggiano shavings on top.

A bit quirky, I started blogging after successfully getting my son to eat by talking like a robot. I then transformed into said robot and have been writing about my parenting learnings ever since. Inspired by my infant daughter, imaginative toddler son and supportive husband, I document life as I know it: chaotic, coffee soaked and filled with awesomeness. In my spare time I enjoys fake shopping online, writing love letters to Ryan Gosling, and avoiding folding laundry.
