“I’m such a massive fan of soup all year round, I think this is great for the summer with citrus and lots of herbs. The tohu was soooo good in this crumb too. It’s a perfect hormone balancing soup with lots of brasiccas rich in glucosinolates, beneficial for cancer prevention. And then the chickpea in the tohu for the phytoestrogens, plant protein and fibre.”
