Thank you to Soupologie for sharing this outstanding recipe with us. We got to try it recently at the fantastic workshop they ran in collaboration us. This soup is wonderfully creamy despite the absence of cream! The entire range is gluten free and vegan too.
Soupologie was founded by Master Soupologist, Stephen, who discovered his talent for making soups while cooking for his family. Challenged by them to take his passion for soup-making to a wider audience, he set off to market stalls across London, armed with his saucepans, ladles, soup and camping stove! He was delighted to find that people loved his soups and were happy to chat to him and encourage him to expand. The Simply Delicious range really took off during 2012 and as a result of Stephen still doing food tastings and getting people’s feedback, he has continued to develop the soups and create really exciting flavours.
