“i really like eating and making soup. its ace my mate at work duncan bought me the covent garden cookbook and this is my favourite soup recipe so far. I reckon you make this slimming world freindly by using spray cal or fry light instead of oil and leaving oil out of the basil puree but ill give its pure unadulterated beauty without changes i reckon. It cost me about a £5 to make and it made a lot of servings”
