When it’s cold outside, you can’t get much better than a nice, hot bowl of soup to keep you warm. This versatile vegetable soup is the perfect winter time meal, and it’s so easy to make that you can quickly whip up a batch on a weekday for the whole family.


Servings: 6

Time: 30 minutes


You will need:

  • 1 frying pan
