I had a little taste of this soup and then into the freezer it went . It made a generous amount and I had to use coriander and parsley as I had no basil. It was great and I loved the unusual addition of mushrooms. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.

I followed this recipe quite loosely, I also added bacon but used tomato paste instead of tomatoes & I omitted the cream & sugar. This was a lovely warming thick soup that even toddler DD enjoyed. Thanks for posting!
