Very easy to make and absolutely delicious. Used a stick blender and blended the soup in the saucepan. So, not only is it cheap, delicious and healthy, but there's also very little washing up!

This was so easy to make and really yummy. As a bonus it's also low in fat and healthy. I made this for friends today with a fresh seeded loaf and they asked for seconds so can't be bad!
