    I make this once a week at least in the winter. Its great when we come in from football, or to have with a garlic loaf while we are watching football or need a quick wholesome snack before we go out. I omit the onion as I can't eat it, but it tastes great all the same. Its an excellent recipe to get veggies into your children, my son loves it and doesn't complain about the vegetables!

    Unfortunately, this soup tasted fairly bland. Have amended recipe to replace tinned tomatoes with mild salsa and have made a few minor alterations. That should improve the flavour considerably. The salsa provides a wonderful zing to soups. - 23 Apr 2016
