    I had spicy tom soup for dinner, it was like someone had tipped some wood shavings into it, as I say above,
    What the Heck????:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Is it supposed to be 'textured' or did I not wait long enough after the kettle boiled???

    I liked the flavour but drank a ltr of water washing down the wood so at least got a positive out of it.

    know the fine wood chip effect well.
    The Tom soup had slighty different cooking technique to the other soups.
    1) mix into a paste with cold water.
    2) thenadd the hot ,no boiling water,
    3) enjoy smooth (ish ) soup.

    It does say this on the backof the pack. Actually says it on al the flavours.
    If you do it as described it does makequt a difference...honest

    Thanks Jane, I was busy and didn't wait as long after the kettle had boiled, My husband said strain it but that would lose some of the goodness I suppose.

    Yes & No.
    Srained through a filter paper..yes.
    Strained through your teeth ..No, as you'd get to keep al the nutrative bits & have the lumps saved in the gaps to keep you going all afternoon.

    ps sorry about typing in last reply.brain always goes faster than fingers

    What difference does it make to the non-tomato flavours?

    I don't know Jane!

    I have always mixed my soups that way because the CDC told me to!

    I don't have problems with lumps in the shakes.

    I also do this with the hot Chocolate shake I have in the evening too.

    Try it, it does work!

    Thanks for that.
    Does it make the shakes easier to mix without lumps? So if a client doesn't have a whizzer this method will produce smooth drinks using a balloon whisk or similar?

    Ive bought an electric Whisk for all my drinks and blend them till they are smooth. I've also used Tumeric and ginger in the more bland soups as it adds a bit of colour and taste.

    Know what you mean about the sand.
    I sort of got used to it eventually I think
    Had a tine of heainz soup recently. no Sand .seemed odd.
