I know it’s not really the done thing to blow your own trumpet, but I really do think I make the best soup in the world. I certainly make better soup than Tesco’s “3 tins of additive filled tins of flavoured water for £1.50”, and so after making this weeks soup, I was very glad I put those tins down and went off to get a cauliflower instead.
I’m not a massive fan of cauliflower, so wasn’t sure how it would be in a soup, but this soup is WOW.
