“It seems every house in Ireland has a pot of this soup on the boil. Each family with it's own recipe. It is cheap, delicious and filling. I devised this version through trial and error, but it is always a favourite with anyone i serve it to. You can replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock to serve as vegetarian. This is not set in stone, so adjust as you see fit.”
