This is like a sophisticated version of tomato soup and grilled cheese – except without the bread. The tangy goats cheese really gives it another dimension at the end. And bacon? Well, bacon is fantastic on everything – as most of you already know!
If you’re dairy free, you can easily use coconut milk instead of the heavy cream, but if you’re fine with dairy then make sure you don’t skip it. The creaminess that it adds just takes this soup over the top – bringing you comfort and happiness in a simple and easy to make soup. Join in with me and have a bowl yourself.
Roasting the red peppers and cauliflower bring a whole new dimension to this soup. It’s rich with a slight spiciness to it, but not overpowering. It’s a great starter to any protein-heavy meal, as it’s got a solid chunk of fats. And, best of all, the flavors of the vegetables really come out, giving off a hint of smokiness in each bite.
Note: If you don’t have access to duck fat, you can use chicken fat or bacon fat. If you have neither of those, feel free to use butter. The fat will give a sense of richness and flavor to the soup that will really help it develop. Usually, you can find duck fat in co-ops or Whole Food-like stores. Call ahead and ask if they have it in stock or if you can request it. Mine cost about $7 per pound, so try not to pay too much more than that. Settle with chicken fat if duck fat is too expensive.
