This soup is absolutely gorgeous. I added some finely diced garlic sausage, this made it even better, if that were possible. I'll definitely make this again.

I love this! It always takes me a lot longer to cook through and reduce down a bit (we have induction hobs though so I tend to find this with soups and sauces that need reducing). Relatively quick to make for a filling, healthy supper - leftovers are still good for lunch the next day.

The one word I would use to describe this soup is sinch! So easy and uses all the things I would have in my kitchen anyway. To top it off it's really tasty :) One tip I would give is use good quality tinned tomatoes; I didn't and think it may have affected the flavour as this is the basis of the recipe.

This was tasty when eating fresh but did not freeze well.

This was light, healthy but very filling. My husband liked it as it was, but I felt it could use a little chilli pepper. Next time I'll reduce the amount of stock as it was a little too watery for my liking. I will definitely make it again.

Quick, easy and tasty. Added some chilli to give it a bit of a kick. Made it for dinner for my husband and I and had enough left for lunch a few days later. It tasted even better! Would definitely make again.
