This soup, I promise, is unlike anything you have ever tasted before.
It is hearty and filling, but stands out and benefits from the addition of lemon which gives it a lovely, zesty intrigue.
It is perfect for the cooler weather, thanks to its immune strengthening properties, but could easily be enjoyed all year round when looking for a holistic meal.
