I posted a photo of this soup a few nights ago, and I have been asked at least 100 times for the recipe! It is my dear mum's soup- Shirley- who we affectionately call Mutti (German for 'Mother'). She takes care of me when I'm tired, overworked and can't be bothered cooking for myself. Whenever I visit her, she always has something delicious waiting for me. Thanks mum xx

  4. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine
  5. Bring to a high boil, then drop the heat and simmer for 3-4 hours, topping up water as needed
