I’m looking forward to making this soup. I’ve bought the ingredients, but just re-read the name of the soup – Sweet potato, broccoli, and HAM soup.
I’ve just noticed you put the ham ingredient next to the leeks, so I didn’t notice it. You may wish to put it on a separate line.
Anyway, I will pop out and buy some ham today and look forward to enjoying this soup soon. Thanks for the recipe 😀
