Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    Lovely, and made a pretty good main meal with some homemade bread (a Paul Hollywood bloomer, since you ask). I used Savoy rather than white cabbage, and left out the blanching step (because I'm lazy). Very simple indeed, but delicious.

    Peasant food, simple and good. I did not add any extra salt - the stock and the bacon provided plenty of salt. I left out the potato - those who wanted carbs crumbled some bread into their soup bowls. I added a splash of white wine to add a bit more acidity and depth, and this worked well.
