    Delicious! I adjusted the vegetables to what I had in my cupboard (carrot, leek, peas, sweetcorn, spinach). I was dubious about adding the evaporated milk, but it really made this dish wonderful. I'll certainly be making it again!  -  30 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    I loved this soup. It was so easy to make and I might not blend any next time  -  26 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Absolutely lovely, had to add some extra water to the leftovers the next day because it had dried up quite a lot, but it was still really nice and creamy.  -  23 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
