    Easy, but completely lacks any flavor..

  • Becky

    Delicious, as we added a stock cube, a dash of Worcester sauce and 2 extra rashers of bacon.

  • James

    Easy and filling but not tasteful

  • Louise

    A filling and satisfying bowl of goodness.

  • Sarah

    Was looking forward to trying this as some great ingredients. Although it had flavour it lacked something in depth, tomato puree or some stock.

  • Hannah

    Not a fan of soup but thoroughly enjoyed this. Added a vegetable stock cube,more bacon & Worcestershire sauce as per suggestion as well as some oregano.

  • Paige
