1/4 cup diced bacon
1 Tbsp oil
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup thinly-sliced leeks
1 L light stock
3 cups peas, preferably fresh
1/4 cup heavy cream
Salt and pepper

In a soup pot, cook bacon until crispy, remove to paper towels to drain, and reserve for garnish.

Add oil and flour to pot and cook for 3 minutes, stirring. Add leeks and cook 3 minutes, then add stock.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Add peas and cook 5 minutes.
