One of the recipes I brought back from sunny Portugal! This soup is often served as a starter, (they eat a LOT in Portugal!) but it is also cheap as chips…cheaper maybe. It is very comforting and especially good served with a big basket of bread, as they do in Lisbon!
Watch this space for some more delish recipes inspired by my travels. I am still collating all the pics and ideas. But there is loads more where this came from!
