This tasty and creamy soup is made with one of our soup products to create a cozy, warm and filling meal. Make it in batches and pop it in the freezer to save for later, so you always have a mug or bowl in hand. Developed by our team in Europe, it’s a perfect German-inspired dish for those cold, wintery nights.
