“For best results prepare this one-day ahead. When the ingredients are allowed to blend overnight the flavour is amazing. An incredible soup that can be a meal on its own. Be prepared; all the chopping takes time if you are doing it by hand. I cheat by running the vegetables through the food processor twice.”
