This Best Veggie Soup Recipe is super healthy as it is packed with vegetables and has a tomato base. If I’m trying to lose a few pounds I make a big batch and snack on it between meals to keep the hunger pangs away. I also make it as an easy lunch for the family.
It’s more of a summer soup, as it’s quite a light with seasonal peppers and courgettes, but it can be made at any time.
