Tomato Soup Country Style

I love tomato soup but am always looking for variations. This variation uses Savoy cabbage.

Tomato Soup Country Style

10 slices bacon, minced
2 medium onions, chopped
2 leeks, white part only, cleaned and chopped
2 1/2 lbs tomatoes, chopped
1 cup Sauterne
1 1/2 cup chicken stock
1 small Savoy cabbage, chopped
1 Tbs chopped fresh basil
1 tsp dried Thyme
1 cup cooked long-grain rice
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Saute bacon in large soup pot over low heat. Drain all but 1 Tbs of the fat. Add onions and leeks. Saute until wilted. Add tomatoes, 1/2 cup of the Sauterne and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add the cabbage, basil and Thyme and simmer partially covered for 40 minutes. Add the rice and garlic.

Allow the soup to cool then puree in blender. Return soup to pot and add remaining Sauterne, salt & pepper. Cook for 30 more minutes.

Serve with basil.
