Comforting and tasty soup, easy to prepare and to adjust to your taste.

Roasting the veggies makes a big difference and the flavor will be improved.

You may change the spices and herbs to taste, you may also use pumpkin instead of carrots and why not perhaps beet roots, tomatoes and red peppers!

For an Asian taste you may replace the broth with a mixture of water, coconut milk and light soy sauce.

Create your own soup and enjoy!

    • Thanks a lot Kato! I think that many other vegetables (beet, sweet potatoes, zucchini, squash) could be used in the same way: roasting them in advance! Thanks for the great review and especially for trying my recipes!
