Notes

Option: leave soup chunky as it is, or puree in a blender for a thick, creamy soup. A nice touch is to blend half of the soup and leave the rest chunky- mixing the textures together, Once cooled, this soup can be frozen in 1/5 litre mason jars to be enjoyed as a single serving at a later time.
