Laura - Dec 29, 2018

Wow. Me, hubby & our 8 yr old all loved this. Will order again & again. Even though it’s ‘only’ a soup don’t be fooled, it’s definitely filling enough as a main meal on its own. Spicy hot but bareable, especially once you’ve added a squeeze of lime. Gorgeous.

Excellent. Those who said it had no depth of flavour must have no taste buds. It was good. I ovened the squash for 30 mins before. Added Chinese lettuce too. Yum.
