    Was this recipe ever tested? I got it from the store and it said to use 4 litres of water. That was too much so I checked here to see if it was a mistake and your online recipe says 6 litres. What a mess.
    Major fail. I will never make this again!

      Hi Dianne!

      Thank you for sharing your feedback. To be sure, all of our posted recipes are created and tested in-house prior to posting (one of the perks!). 4 litres was indeed correct for this soup, and shouldn’t have caused any issues for you. However, you are right – 6 litres was an error when posting to our site. We apologize for the inconvenience, and have changed it to the appropriate 4 litres!

      We apologize for the inconvenience – we hope you do give it a try again, at the 4 litre mark – we can definitely vouch for how delicious it is!
