Squash, Carrot & Noodle Soup

This is one of our favourite soups. The combination of peanut butter, chilli and ginger give this soup a wonderful rich flavour and adding noodles turns this into a really filling meal in a bowl. Move over pot noodle. There's a new boy in town!

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

  16. Hi CC
    I have only recently started to add pasta to soup, but I am now a convert!

  17. I never would have thought to use peanuts as a garnish for soup!

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