  1. This is absolutely fantastic, great for pre-autumn season. I’m not big fan of this kind of toast, so instead I’ve made regular croutons, and spreaded grated cheese on top of soup – it also worked really well 🙂

    Hello, can I use vegetable stock cubes instead of chicken to make the soup vegan? Thanks in advance

  4. Red bell peppers (all bell peppers) gives me heartburn. Is there another veggie I can replace it with?

      You can consider leaving the peppers out. The soup will still be delicious.
