Chefs tips
  • You could use any stock, such as chicken or beef. Stock can be high in salt so choose reduced-salt options whenever possible.
  • Try adding a shredded chicken breast or pieces of marinated or smoked tofu.
  • You can also add other vegetables, such as peppers, courgettes, broccoli or tinned sweetcorn.
  • Freezing instructions: Freeze in portions then defrost in the fridge, or defrost in a microwave, taking care to stir regularly.
