2 carrots, peeled and chopped

225g (8 oz) shelled broad beans

Cut the bacon into 1cm (1/2 inch) cubes and place them in a large cocotte. Put the cocotte over a gentle heat until the fat runs from the bacon.

Add the potatoes, leeks and carrots and stir lightly. Cover the cocotte and cook the vegetables gently for 5 minutes, shaking the pan frequently.

Add the broad beans, peas, paprika, thyme, garlic and garlic sausage. Pour in the stock, add a little seasoning and bring to the boil. Lower the heat, cover and simmer the soup gently for 30 minutes.

Add the cabbage and simmer the soup for a further 15 minutes. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning before serving.
