Squash, Carrot & Noodle Soup




































This is an easy soup recipe. The combination of peanut butter, chilli and ginger give this soup a gorgeous flavour and adding the noodles, makes this soup a meal in a bowl. We love this soup and this will definitely be on the menu when we have guests visiting.

  15. I love pasta in soup - to my (greedy) mind, it turns a starter into a main course!

  18. Hi Apple, It is lovely to have that salty crunch and probably even more so because there is peanut butter in the soup.
