Tips & Tricks
  • Jazz up our Kumara and bacon soup by topping with Kumara chips and crispy bacon. To make Kumara chips thinly slice Kumara, toss in a small amount of oil and bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 10 minutes.
  • Don’t cut off the fat from the bacon this has great flavour.


  1. Heat a large saucepan, pan fry onion and bacon in olive oil until the bacon changes colour, add garlic and kumara.
  2. Fill saucepan with stock, cover and cook for 25 minutes, until the kumara is soft and tender, then puree with a stick blender.
  3. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
