This smells fantastic when cooking. Imagine the disappointment when we only got enough soup for one serving each for 2 adults and a toddler. Double the recipe! Very nice soup.

This tasted much nicer than I thought it would (not too sweet) and was really easy to make. I added a courgette as I had one that was past it's best - I think this is the kind of soup that would stand up well to having lots of different things added, a great "eat the fridge" kind of soup. Thanks for posting.
