Method

  1. Start by prepping the base of your soup: trim and very finely slice the celery, peel and roughly chop the carrots and trim, wash and roughly chop the leeks. Peel and very finely slice the garlic, then pick and finely chop the rosemary. Finely slice the bacon.
  2. Heat a lug of oil in a large pan on a medium heat, then add the rosemary and bacon. Fry for a few minutes, or until the bacon is just turning golden, then add the chopped celery, carrots, leeks and garlic. Cook gently for around 15 minutes, or until soft, stirring regularly.
  3. Add the beans (there’s no need to drain them) and stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 30 minutes – add a little more stock or water if you think it needs it. Finally, add the spinach or kale and the peas and cook for a further 3 minutes, or until the greens are cooked but still vibrant green. Have a taste and season, if needed, then tuck in.
  4. Tips & tricks: For baby, leave out the bacon and used low-salt or homemade salt-free stock. Allow to cool, blend or mash to the desired consistency. For more information on stages of complimentary feeding, click here.
