    I love all of the ingredients in this soup so it stands to reason I would love it. It;s so easy to make too. Play around with the ingredients:I have tried this with an extra hot green chilli and with different coloured peppers to make it a bit more colourful...whatever you prefer, it still tastes great.  -  14 Mar 2013

    Absolutely brilliant!! Even my super fussy other half loves this. Satisfying and loads of flavour but very easy to make and cheap too (maybe another reason he likes it....)  -  18 Jan 2016
