None – most of the books recipes are only in the books so you won’t find all of them on our website also 🙂

This was so easy to make, and turned out thick and super tasty! I added a few celery sticks that I needed to use up, and only had one onion. I had planned to fry off the onion, celery and bacon before adding to the pot but didn’t have time. I’m glad I didn’t because it really didn’t need it! Seconds all round – will make this again.

Delicious recipe!! I added two small white potatoes just because I needed to use them up and used vegetable stock instead of chicken stock as we are dairy and soy free. I like my soup kind of chunky so didn’t blend it too much. Stirred through some coconut cream at the end and it was so yummy!
