A Warming Winter Soup

It seems guests are always looking for new soup recipes, and this healthy low fat option is so tasty that it has become one of Tanda Tula’s house favourites. A little twist on a mushroom soup, but not quite a sweet potato one either. Perfect for vegetarians, but popular with everyone. We wanted to share the recipe on the blog because it is one that guests so often ask for.

We hope you enjoy it. If you want to beef it up a bit add some crispy bacon chopped into small pieces as a sprinkle right at the end.
