A lovely soup, very much enjoyed by DH and I last night. Simple to prepare and lots of flavour, I put a dash of cayenne pepper on DHs, to serve, but for me, the flavours were perfect. I used up the celery in the fridge, so I probably had added more than the recipe requires, but I do like my veggies...... it was lovely! On my make again list, thanks, Sam!
