this was divine! i made a few changes though - I roasted the veg and substited the cream with low fat nat yoghurt and I think I may on reflection have already rated this !! - 16 Jan 2013


I thought this was delicious! I did vary it slightly, I roasted the veg, and for a a bit of spice at the sweating onions and garlic stage I added 2 tsp of hot curry powder. i was told 'it was the best soup he'd ever had in his life! guess you can't ask for more than that1 - 09 Jan 2013


This is a really easy soup to make and tastes great. I used raw veg and doubled up on the ingredients so I could freeze some for quick healthy lunches. - 11 Feb 2015
