Bacon & Vegetable Soup Skinnymixers

Bacon & Vegetable Soup is the recipe that started it all – Inspired by Maddy from Forum Thermomix, this is the first recipe I ever released on the Skinnymixers Facebook Group and a very popular one ever since.

It is a hearty, filling and nourishing soup without the calories. Super budget friendly and you can utilise whatever vegetables that you have in the fridge.

The Bacon & Vegetable Soup recipe is a free recipe and it also features in The Healthy Mix Cookbook with updated variations for different dietary needs. Gluten free, dairy free and can easily be made vegetarian, LCHF or Keto.

LCHF Bacon Vegetable Soup

This healthy Thermomix Soup recipe will quickly become your go-to Soup, when you don’t know what to make for dinner.

You can omit the bacon for a vegetarian version or omit the carrot and pasta for the LCHF / Keto version.

    Made this today without the pasta and only 2 lightsprays of MCT coconut oil…. Added a little chilli and made egg ribbons as the pasta… so very very delightful… NIK I can’t believe I have only made this after all these years of following you and living all your recipes 💝

  2. I followed the recipe but didn’t add the lemon zest at the end, added a pinch of chilli flakes to my bowl. Yummo!

  3. My husband firmly believes soup is an appetiser, not a main, however even he gobbled this down when I cooked it earlier in the week – bacon clearly makes everything better!

    A great way to clean out the crisper drawer of old veggies (I used chilli, carrot, capsicum, celery and zucchini), and I used GF pasta in the relevant step (next time I’ll add a little more).

  4. 5 stars
    This is a regular in our household! My 3 year old and 1 year old scoff it down as they do all of Niks recipes! Love it!

  5. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this soup.
    It has to be the BEST soup recipe out there…and I’ve made a few!
    Don’t even need to look at recipe any more.
    Love Skinnymixers recipes as they always work❤

  6. Never fails
    Rich tasting soup that is light on calories. I’ve made it so many times and each time I think to myself “I should make this more often”

  7. I’m not a huge soup eater (after a traumatic experience with tomato soup as a child!) but I love this soup. So versatile and I use up whatever is lurking in the refrigerator. Yum!

  8. So good!! we make it every week to have for those times when the kids won’t eat dinner, at least they will eat this and get their veggies!

    Is step 5 supposed to be reverse?

  9. This was SO good! My 3 fussy kids loved it and didn’t blink an eye at all those veggies. Winner winner!

  10. This was the 2nd time I’ve made this soup, but only the 1st time using the lemon zest – I think that made it next level for me!

    Will keep using the zest in future for sure.

  11. So quick and tasty and a thumbs up from all the family. This will definitely be on our winter comfort check list. Can’t believe I hadn’t made this earlier!

  12. Yum! Love that I can use up leftover vegetables (made it with zucchini, carrot, purple cabbage, celery and a tiny bit of potato) with this recipe. We sprinkled a little Parmesan on top.

  13. Oh my goodness- I made a soup that my kids are without complaint!! (Well, 3 out of 4 anyway).

    Filling and enough for my husband to have 2 big serves, 1 big serve for me, smaller ones for the 4 kids (between 7 and 10 months). No leftovers.
    I doubled the bacon and added grated parmesan on top. So good!!

  14. Thank you Nik, I have been looking at this recipe for some time and made it yesterday for lunch with nitrate free bacon, leftover leeks, celery, broccoli stalk, carrot and swiss brown mushrooms. I also used chicken stock from a steamed chicken the day prior. Oh my, such flavour and filling. My dog sat beside me in hopeful anticipation! A winner all round.

  15. This is only the second thing I’ve made in my mistral kitchen machine, and it didn’t dissapoint! I had to chop the veges for longer but other than that the recipe was fine for my machine. I did use more bacon, veges I used were zucchini, carrot and celery. I also used 1litre of chicken stock instead of vege. Will definitely be making this again!

  16. Very encouraged by all the positive comments about this recipe! If I don’t want to use bacon (processed meat) what could I substitute – another meat?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

  17. OMG loved this, thought it might be bland (sorry nik) but it is absolutely amazing!! I add some cut up chunks of cheddar to the bowl before serving for a nice goey cheesy bite every now & then (something my husband does with tomato soup that I thought sounded crazy until I tried it myself)! Yum, going to stock up freezer, may eat nothing else but this for lunch this winter!! Keep up the great work skinnymixers!
