  1. Made the soup this evening.

    Made one and a half times the quantity and fed 6 of us with generous helpings and some left over for tomorrows lunch.

    Really delicious with a wholewheat sour-dough bread.

    Thanks Margo.

    • Glad you all enjoyed it, Danny! Sourdough bread gives an upgrade to any soup. Try my ribollita recipe – you put sourdough bread into the soup during the cooking process and it gives great flavor and body.
