"There’s nothing humble about this soup’s rich, creamy flavour – it tastes, remarkably, like mushrooms. And if it seems just a little too pared-back, it’s very easy to jazz it up with some nice finishing touches. Make sure the potatoes are well scrubbed before you peel them so the peels are very clean.
A tasty and nutritious vegetable pie that could still be made during times of rationing and food shortages. Named after Lord Woolton, who helped to make the recipe popular when he became Minister of Food in 1940.
