  • A delicious soup. I only used

    Submitted by JENNIGRANDMA on 21. June 2016 - 10:28.

    A delicious soup. I only used one garlic clove as I like the garlic just to be a subtle undertone.

    It was good and filling, just what we needed for a winters day. Made a lovely amount. Soup you can put away for another day is so good.

    I had a large half cauli, so I think it needed a bit more cooking and whizzing. I could not fit it all in the varoma, so had to put the potatoes in the bottom.

    I had some chicken connsume that needed using so I used that instead of the water and even added up to a litre and the soup was still thick.

    I had no crame frache and so served it as it was and it was superb. Thank you thermial for sharing.

    Love this recipe!! I substituted the butter with Nuttelex and left out the creme frache to make it dairy free and it was delicious! So creamy & so much flavor!

    Great recipe, I blitzed the chicken into the soup but added a little too much pepper so there was a fair amount of heat in the finished product!!
