  1. I have never thought of making soup from lettuce before. Very ingenious! also, it sounds great, 🙂

  2. I worked in a pub in England many years ago, they always had so much lettuce left over, that one day I decided to try to make soup with it. It was such a success with everyone, has a lovely delicate taste, and also acts like an aprodisiac!! make and enjoy!!!
