This is a fantastic winter soup, as pret say it's"been described as a vegetarian roast dinner in a bowl." As with most recipes use this as a guide and throw in any root veg you have lying around, the potatoes thicken it so make sure you keep those. If you use a sprig of fresh rosemary discard it before blitzing with the blender. With a lots of soups I like some fresy crusty bread, but with this one there is no real need, as it's nice and filling. Thanks to Pret for the recipe Will serve 4 as a starter, 2-3 as a main meal
