    Tried Dianes hearty veg soup which was lovely and filling so thought I would give this one a go too and see if it was just as nice! Perfect for these winter nights and easy to make a batch and warm up for lunch/dinner as a quick but filling meal. Waiting for your next recipe now!  -  11 Feb 2014
