Some times we rush our cooking to save time . This recipe benefits from the extra time to cook off onion and leek and the full time to really work the flavours and cook the farrow

Use whole tinned tomatoes and roughly chop in the tin . The cooking prcess will break them down and you know you have the whole tomatoes not just bits and pieces

You can use any type of chilli powder though we love the mexican taste  

Dress with your favourite herbs for more flavour

  • BeesAreCool correctly spelt Farro You can use...

    BeesAreCool: correctly spelt Farro . You can use your grain of choice
    Farro is a food composed of the grains of certain wheat species, sold dried and prepared by cooking in water until soft, but still crunchy. People eat it plain, and often use it as an ingredient in salads, soups, and other dishes. Wikipedia
    As I have said above I use what I have in the house saving the dreaded trip to the shops . Apologies for very late reply thank you for helping

  • Dear BeesAreCool...

    Dear BeesAreCool,

    Sorry you had to wait so long for an answer. I was searching for a bacon and tomato soup and came upon this.

    Thermonut has written farrow at least 5 times in the recipie, so it is not a typo. But according to all accounts this is the giving birth to a litter of pigs, so not applicable.

    Further research found that there is a grain, wheat like in apprearance and thought to be part of the spelt wheat species, but it is spelt FARRO.

    May I suggest that Thermonut has used this grain in the soup. I have never heard of this grain in Australia, so would maybe substitute it for barley?
