  • 2 tablespoons flour and 200g yoghurt mixed together and added at the end of the recipe
  • 100-200g oats or dry noodles added 5-10mins before serving

Hint:

  • If blending the vegetables and considering making a creamy soup, use single cream to keep the consistency thin and use a white sauce for a thicker consistency
