“This soup is super tasty! It’s so easy to make. I use aromatic peas with perks as a base. You just add a load of other veg and let it slowly simmer away while you get on with something else. Add whatever vegetables you like and use frozen veg to make it even speedier. My children love this and always ask for seconds. Serve with hunks of good bread and dive in.”
