This golden, velvet-textured soup is very satisfying and perfect for a warm light lunch on a chilly day. Green apple adds a sweet-sour tang to the flavour, with added zip from chillies, and the croutons provide a satisfying crunch.
3½ portions vegetables
*Freeze the three elements of the meal separately and combine just before serving.
*If you prefer, a generous dash of chilli sauce can be added to the soup instead of the chilli flakes.
For a vegetarian version, replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock and use toasted pepitas to sprinkle over the soup in place of the pepperoni. You'll also need 1 tablespoon olive oil to fry the onion.
