Elegant white wine prawn and feta soup

    45 min

    Mediterranean-inspired flavours enhance this prawn soup with white wine, tomatoes, fragrant spices, feta cheese, garlic and fresh herbs. A beautiful mingling of the tastes of land and sea! Pinot grigio is recommended for the white wine, and be sure to serve this soup with fresh, crusty bread for mopping up - elegantly, of course.
