Instructions

Cook bacon
1
  • Arrange bacon in an even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven until crispy and cooked through, 12-14 min.**
  • Using tongs, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
Make croutons
2
  • Meanwhile, cut ciabatta into 1-inch pieces.
  • Toss ciabatta with 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil on an unlined baking sheet. Season salt and pepper.
  • Toast in the bottom of the oven until croutons are golden and crisp, 8-10 min.
Prep
3
  • While the croutons bake, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green parts separate.
  • Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Cook veggies
4
  • Heat a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then stir until butter melts.
  • Add garlic, peppers, corn and green onion whites. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers start to soften and corn begins to brown slightly, 3 min. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle flour over veggies. Cook, stirring often, until veggies are coated, 1 min.
Start soup
5
  • Add cream cheese, stock powder and 1 1/2 cups (3 cups) water. Carefully whisk until cream cheese is well combined. Bring up to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally, until soup thickens slightly, 2-3 min.
  • Remove from heat, then stir in red pepper pesto. Season with pepper, to taste.
Finish and serve
6
  • Crumble or cut bacon into bite-sized pieces. (TIP: Use kitchen shears to cut bacon with ease.)
  • Divide soup between bowls. Top with bacon and croutons.
  • Sprinkle with cheese and green onion greens.
