Delicious. I reduced the amount of stock cube : water so I can feed it to my seven month old. He loves it too!

The spices make this a great recipe. I used ordinary potatoes, which worked fine.

Thought this recipe was so easy to make and tasted great. Added 1 extra potato, parsnip and carrot and an extra chilli too. Had 2 bowls with Tiger Bread and was full for the rest of the night!!

Gorgeous, and freezes wonderfully. Perfect food for this cold weather. Have made many soups of this type but this one had a particular fluffiness to it (probably the sweet potato) that made it my favourite so far!

My 8 yr old saw this recipe and insisted that I make it for him. I was very skeptical that he would have it once prepared but surprisingly he loved it! Will definitely make it again as long as his taste buds go in favor for this soup. Not only is it delicious it is equally healthy.

This soup was perfect for a cold day, only changes I made were to leave out the milk, just adding a little xtra stock and left out the greek yogurt. It was delicious and made plenty to take to work for lunches!
