ADDICTED! this soup is delicious. Definitely will be making this again and again. Great watching the kids wolf it down knowing that its so good for them. Fab for my flask when Im working too. A new family favourite!

This soup was the first soup I've ever made and I was thrilled with the result. Incredibly inexpensive to make, easy to make and healthy too, what more do you need? I definitely recommend making it and I stuck to the recipe and made no changes. I used Knorr Vegetable stock pots and a large baking size potato. Yum!

Next time I'm going to add two medium potatoes instead of just one. I like my soups smooth but thick and it was a little bit too runny when smooth. Hopefully an extra potato will combat this!

Overall though, apart from me moaning about the thickness: great soup with really nice flavours.

Absolutely delicious soup which was super easy to make! I added quite a few tablespoons of lemon juice which gave it a nice tang and there were plenty of leftovers to have the next day :) Would recommend it to anyone!

Very yummy soup - quite thick, think it was down to the potato quantity I used (doubled it to serve 8) so next time I'll not be as generous with the tatties!

We love this soup, I double up the recipe so there is some to freeze for the kids to have at later dates, I add an extra potato and 1 litre of stock insteed of 1.2 it makes it that little bit thicker.

Had to omit the coriander as I didnt have any, but this is delicious even without, and perfect for my new healthier lifestyle.

Quick and easy and tasty, but did add a pinch of curry and mustard powder.
