RECIPE | VEGETABLE SOUP (NON-VEGETARIAN)
This is an easy Vegetable Soup that is full of nutrients and it is inspired by my mom. She would make this kind of soup every month even during the summer time but for good reason! This soup is so healthy for the body especially during the transitional weather where cold bugs are floating around. It's important to equip your immune system with the proper tools it needs to fight against viruses. This clear-broth soup takes less than 1 hour to make. It's not thick or heavy to drink, making it easy to drink a lot of it. It's also a good idea to eat the vegetables for fibre. For this soup, I use organic free-range chicken broth for best taste or for a meatless option, you can opt for vegetable broth. I use one by Pacific Foods carried at Sobeys or Loblaws. click here for more information.
