Do you prefer soup blended or chunky?
A good serving suggestion for this recipe is to buy some part baked rolls (petits pain). These can be put in the oven and baked (according to the packaging instructions) while the soup is boiling and can be served along with the soup.
This soup recipe can be frozen and reheated, so if you are cooking for one or two people you can either half the recipe, or make the full recipe and store the rest for later. This soup will survive overnight, so if you wish, you can make this the night before and then simply heat to serve on the day.
