This was so quick and easy to make, though my measurements were not too scientific. I was cooking for only 6. Rather than passing the vegetables through a sieve, I chose the other option and blended it all. It was delicious. - 01 Nov 2011


Made this four times now,quick and easy to make, Thanks for posting. I added in some dried ingredients that I had around; coriander, thyme, garlic and parsley too. - 29 Jun 2013


What a delicious soup. I sweated off the vegetables first for about 20 minutes then added the stock and simmered for 10 minutes. I added the milk, seasoning and a little single cream I had in the fridge at the end and then blitzed it all. Lovely soup, will definitely make it again. - 06 May 2014
