Followed the recipe without stock cubes. Just used one litre of water, plus pinch of sea salt and ground half teaspoon whole black peppercorns. I used home grown, very large courgettes, home grown black Russian, Marmande and Golden Sunrise tomatoes. No flour. Very tasty. I will freeze the excess as base for more soups.

I doubled the quantities because I was batch cooking for a community cafe. I found I only needed half the quantity of liquid though i.e. 1 litre if you are doing the quantities in the above recipe. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. The finished soup was delicious and double quantity made 22 generous servings. Will definitely make this again as it was enjoyed very much.

I thoroughly enjoyed this soup. I only added 1 liter of stock and also some garlic granules and chilli powder. As a type 1 diabetic with kidney & protein problems, I find these recipes extremely useful because they contain all the nutritional values :-)

I made this last night and it wasn't as great as all the reviews for it, not too sure where I went wrong! I used the right amount of courgettes and tomatoes (Sainsburys salad tomatoes and a few baby plum toms). Based on feedback I also added a bit of paprika and chilli flakes... maybe I added a bit too much turmeric (didn't bother measuring). I only added 70% of the water and still found it quite watery so I added in some shredded lettuce too. Overall it was fine, and great for a low calorie meal, but really lacking in flavour!

I normally tweak recipes but I made this to the recipe and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Definitely will be in my freezer again.

Before adding the tomatoes and stock I also added one crushed garlic clove, two fresh de seeded chopped chillies and half a teaspoon of basil. I used rice instead of flour and added this after blending. Just before adding the tomatoes and stock I also added one tablespoon of tomato purée. Finallly I added a dash of Worcester sauce. The soup was delicious.

I made a few changes to this soup. I added a celery stick, crushed garlic and i was tempted to add 2 slices of bacon. The result was a tasty and hearty soup and will definitely be doing it again.

How many ml is a serving.

21 chicken stock cubes seems rather too many?!

That's 2 litres of chicken or vegetable stock made from cubes, not 21 cubes.
