      Woohoo. This one surely does 'hit the spot'. Made it the day before and thought, 'Yeah, okay'. But heated up the next day, Just magnificent!! Initially made for Mr 4 yr old who has numerous food intolerances and allergies. As I was checking that it was not too hot for him as he was eating I was blown away by the delicious taste. I used 375mls Campbells Chicken stock plus the water measurement with 2 tsp of Rapunzel Vegetable Bouillon which doesn't contain any artifical colours or flavours. I also didn't blend / puree it, just put a potato masher through to sort of break the mixture down a bit, while it still, remained slighly chunky. Can highly recommend.

      I made this soup using leftovers instead of from scratch: some cooked lentils I used for indian food and homemade sweet potato fries. It turned out absolutely delicious. I also added some leftover spiced rice for variation.

      This is a great soup which appealed to a 5 year old as well as the adults in the house. Smells fantastic while it is cooking!
