A thick, warming soup with excellent flavours- makes a perfect dinner served with bread and salad. Like most soups this tastes better the day after it is made.

Full of flavour! I love this recipe. Left out the onion because I didn't have any. So quick and easy. Will definitely make it again and again. - 27 Jun 2012
