Tips and Cheats

This soup is so easy. It really is a chuck in the pan and cook one! If you haven’t got fresh herbs add in some dried. You can swap out the thyme and parsley for some coriander. If using dried coriander add it in with the pinions and cook it off a little. It is a lovely sweet soup so does need salt. I don’t add salt and pepper to my recipes as I loathe black pepper and don’t use much salt as I have children.
