LISA’S TIP – As I mentioned above, I love to blend my soups for as long as I can to get a creamy smooth texture. Toppings are endless so be as creative as you want, you can add seeds such as sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds for a crunch. Or, if you fancy this soup having a slightly sweeter taste to it, you can throw in some garden or petit pois peas (about 150g) for the last 5 minutes of the cooking time. No need to worry about midweek meals, the soup will keep for up to two or three days in the refrigerator. Or, alternatively, it can be frozen for up to two months – perfect to keep handy for those balmy, al-fresco evenings!
