I used shallots for this because that's what I had in the cupboard! Added a bit of garlic (probably too much!) and it tastes great!! Would recommend you try this quick and simple soup recipe.

Lovely thick soup with a nice taste. I used dried mint.

I love this soup. I make it again and again as the children always ask for it.

Really liked this soup, having read the other comments I was very generous with the mint.

Nice, but not outstanding. Needed more stock than stated. Like the suggestion of adding lemon juice, cooking with leeks and adding a dollop of creme fraiche - would have given it more of a kick.

This went down really, really well at work. My boss, unfortunately forgot to get me fresh mint for this recipe, so I added rosemary instead after blitzing the soup and adding remaining veg. I was just as nice, though I can't wait to see what it's like with the mint.

1st soup I've made, very easy to do. Used dried mint instead instead of fresh, very tasty.

Not a favourite in this house - I'll be throwing most of it away. It's edible, but I'm the only one who thinks so. Don't do what I do and blend the whole mixture, as the texture was gluey. I used fresh mint and thought it was a bit over-powering. Very disappointed overall...

I make this soup but I use mint sauce, so tasty a firm favourite.
