This simple soup is my go to if I need to go food shopping or just need to eat something really comforting. I love homemade soups as I like to know exactly what is going into the food my family and I are eating. Also ideal for vegetarians, as a starter or chilled in warmer climates. Packed with absolute goodness, super easy to make and really quick, you can’t go wrong! As always you can add whatever you like as you go along, experimenting is all part of the fun, but this recipe is fool proof and tastes delicious. If you’re on a budget it’s really cost effective and incredibly filling.
