Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Enjoy with Tasty cheese melts. Preheat grill on high. Grill 4 x 40g slices sourdough bread until lightly toasted. Sprinkle with ½ cup (60g) Bega Country Light Tasty Grated Cheese 50% Less Fat and grill until cheese is hot and bubbling. TIP: You can also use a blender or food processor to process the soup. Allow to cool slightly and make sure you leave the vent open so the steam doesn’t build up and pop off the lid.
