I can't believe it's been so long since I have added a recipe to Grub Galore. I'm sure you will have noticed the shiny new look around the place, hope you like it.

Anyway, onto the recipe. This is a wonderful, feel good soup which is extremely healthy and nourishing.  It has been described to me 'like a hug in a bowl' - perfect for any day but especially when feeling under the weather.

It's very simple so I hope you give it a try and I'd love to hear about it in the comments.
