A very tasty, hearty and rich flavoured meal, great with rice or crusty bread, a bottle of wine or a beer! Make in advance to improve the flavours.
This is a hearty, warm and healthy soup. Easy to make for beginners. I came up with this recipe when I was looking for a soup to make for my partner and I to take to work for lunch. I needed something that would last at least 6 portions and that would be suitable for freezing. I wanted to ensure I was keeping the budget low and the goodness high so opted for swede instead of potato and beans instead of meat. I believe this soup would be to everyone's liking, even the kids.
