I have cooked my soup in the Morphy Richards 501012 Soup maker that was sent to me to try.The recipe post is in collaboration with Legal and General who are promoting healthy eating. My inspiration was to create a healthy soup that that would be perfect to serve after all the indulgence of rich Christmas food. This soup is perfect as a starter to any Chinese meal, for lunch or just as an appetiser in shot glasses to serve at parties.The recipe is also suitable for the 5:2 diet.
