Nothing is more comforting than soup after school on a cold and gloomy day. If the soup is full of veg goodness then we are not only nourishing our soul, we are doing the same to our body.

Today I made this delectable soup, which is very comforting, healthy, and light on your digestive system. One great thing about this recipe is that you can use your favourite vegetables, legumes, and even pasta.

This is a great recipe for people who are watching their weight and at the same time, don’t want to starve themselves. Believe me, it’s so good in taste that you will be hooked to it and will make this again and again.WhatsApp Image 2018-12-03 at 3.47.06 PM
