This soup is both delicious, healthy and warming during the winter months.  It’s quick to make and the leftovers are even more flavoursome and tasty the next day.  Here is the recipe:

We find our kids prefer this soup fully blended (great if you want to hide all the vegetables!) and Danny likes his with a kick of chilli. You can also add white wine for a richer taste if you like.


Enjoy!
