Indian Home-Style Mix Vegetable Soup

A lil’ bit of this, a lil’ bit of that Soup

On a freezing cold day like today and the Lord of weather pouring snow outside, a hot bowl of soup is a great soothing tonic for comfort when we need that warmth the most. A nice warm meal is something we want when the temperatures drop.

With the winter-weather warnings On and snow-storm emergencies declared, the school closure announcements done and adults working from home, it looks like a long weekend again.

Munchkin is busy watching KungFu Panda movie and hubby is busy playing office-office on his laptop, I am just trying to prepare a hot meal in the kitchen to keep everybody warm at home.

This stormy weather won’t let me go out and grab any special ingredients for the soup. So, I decided to throw together all the leftover veggies stocking up in my refrigerator into the Soup pot. That’s the reason I named this one as “A lil’ bit of this, a lil’ bit of that Soup”.

With the goodness of all the hearty veggies going in the pot, it’s going to be a “Goldmine of Nutrients” Soup Bowl this evening. So, put on your snuggly slippers and walk in the kitchen. I bet, the effort is going to be worth a warm treat of this super healthy bowl.
