Delicious soup, and very cheap to make. I stirred in a little garlic cream cheese at the end and it gave it a delicious creamy swirl.

I added some grated Parmesan to taste and it was lovely. Would make this again!

We love this in our house. Especially my 18 month old daughter who thinks its great. The soup is really good for taking to work the following day too (minus the fish fingers). A real family favourite.

Loved this soup, a meal in a bowl. Very quick and easy. Made the mistake of adding a bag of sugar snap peas I had to use up which made the end result rather stringy, will stick to podded peas next time.

This was delicious, looked just like the picture and possible the easiest soup I have made. Hubby was very impressed with the concept of fish finger croutons. Will make this again.

Delicious! I made this last night, when I saw the recipe I wasn't sure but decided to give it a go as the comments where so good. It was really lovely warming comfort food. The fish fingers are a must as they add a little something extra.

I made this for lunch today and agree with everyone that it is incredibly tasty. I think next time I make it I will add more stock as it was a bit thick and now it is cold, it looks a bit like baby food!
