Turkish Walnut Soup


"There's a few countries that claim to be the birthplace of walnut soup and countless variations and recipes. This particular version is Turkish, and it's one of my favourite autumn soups to make. I've specified vegetable stock in the recipe, although it's worth noting that I've used chicken stock in the past."
