There’s nothing like cold weather to bring out a craving for vegetable soup!

Nothing special, just rounded up veggies, spices, and herbs from the fridge and pantry to cook up some delicious goodness.

The thing about a nice hot bowl of soup is that it nourishes your body and soul. Add a nice piece of bread and you have yourself a meal.

With Coronavirus on the rise, and as we don’t have a treatment for it, the best thing you can do is strengthen your immune system and improve your resilience to the virus. The vegetables in this soup lower inflammation, the very thing that makes you more susceptible to the virus.

So don’t waste another minute, go make this vegetable soup!
