My Scottish mother-in-law was not too fond of cooking but she made this soup when I went to her home for the very first time in Irvine and I loved it so much that she made it for me each time I visited. This is her recipe.
It has no added fats, is so healthy and wholesome and if you are craving comfort food try this for a healthy option.

It is just delicious and gets rid of all those hunger pangs very quickly !
