French Lettuce and Pea Soup with Turkey Bacon

Limp lettuce? Waste not. This soup takes a note from the French, who serve lettuce in soup. The flavours are clear, with an earthy yet sweet undertone. A few pieces of turkey bacon give a smoky vibe to the dish without making it heavy.

Tip

For a slightly bitter edge, replace half of the leaf lettuce in this soup with escarole.
