The soup was lovely - it is one of my favourites. The sweet yet savoury flavours of the main ingredients complement each other perfectly and make this really comforting. I think the corriander adds to the warming effect too because it is so aromatic and the tomato puree I throw in there adds a gorgeous tang. The first time I made this soup I used chicken stock but this time I tried something abit unusual. I made cider pulled pork last weekend and didn't want to throw away the cider that was left so I saved it and skimmed off the pork fat once it had chilled. Hey presto - cider pork stock! Of course, this made the soup taste different from the last time but everyone was really intrigued who saw me eating it at uni for lunch. They are getting used to my food experiments now!
