Nothing is better than a hot soup with spicy flavours on cold winter days!
0,5 kg [1,1 lb] potatoes, diced
1 bunch green onions or 1 leek
2 tablespoons olive oil
200 g [0,44 lb] bacon, diced
about. 8 dl [1,6 pt] chicken stock (or water + cube)
2 cans chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon sambal oelek (hot chilli paste)
1 teaspoon cumin
 Scrub and peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Peel the carrots and cut them into slices. Cut the green onions in 3/4 inch pieces or cut the leek into slices.
 Heat a saucepan with 1 tablespoon olive oil and fry the bacon brittle. Take it out and put aside on kitchen paper.
 Add a little oil in the pan. Saute onions or leeks. Pour in broth and tomatoes and bring to a boil. Add the bacon, potatoes, carrots, sambal oelek and cumin.
 Let everything simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 10 minutter. Taste the soup with salt and pepper.
 Serve the soup piping hot with bread and a sprinkling of the green of the spring onions.
