  1. It looks great, a good alternative the veg soups, I imagine this would be quite filling too. I bet my husband would love it!
    Thanks so much for linking up to #Howtosunday 🙂 x

  2. This looks delicious! I have been seeing a lot of soup recipes recently! I am warming up to the idea – i used to think soup was just watery rubbish but seeing these kinds of recipes with lots of chunky bits is a bit more encouraging! Thanks for sharing #howtosunday
