    This is lovely, smooth and creamy. Ive made it up and frozen it, just perfect for a midweek meal and with all the lovely bread machine recipes on this site i will defrost the soup while im at work and put the timer on the bread machine, so when we get home from work we can have lovely homemade soup and homemade bread. Perfect for when you want to relax after a hard day at work  -  01 Feb 2010


    Gorgeous and flavoursome. My boyfriend just made me this and it was scrumptious.  -  01 Aug 2011


    I used yellow peppers, didn't pass it through a sieve and added soured cream, so basically I changed the recipe but it was still scrummy. Will definitely make it again.  -  07 Sep 2012
