  6. Add the stock and bring to the boil. Check all veggies are soft.

  1. Made this soup today for the freezer it’s absolutely delicious. This is now my favourite go to soup ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  2. Hi, where did you get the soup bags from please? Also, do you think it would be ok to air fry the carrots and parsnips?

    1. You can get these bags from lots of places, I think I got them from Home Bargins. They are called Tip n Zip bags, brill for sauces and soups. Ohh ive not tried an air fryer but I’m sure it would!

  3. Absolutely fantastic soup, have told my friends about it.

    Told them about your website and to look at for ideas and inspiration.

  4. Had it at Christmas lunch – everybody loved it including the children. Have made it again and again. So cheap to make and so tasty!
