Altered ingredient amounts. I've substituded the carrots for butternut squash and added some chilli flakes, it's delicious! - 06 Jan 2010

This was great!! i used vegetable stock for mine and it was lovely! If using veggie stock, you might want to add a few more peas. Loved it! - 21 Aug 2009

Loved this recipe, simple ingredients...simple to make and so tasty! I will be making this again. I decided not to puree the soup in the end as I liked it the way it was. xx - 10 Jun 2012
