Fruit & Nut Winter-squash Soup

A simmering pot of soup on the stove is the only one remedy to these cold wintery days I could think of. There’s certainly a touch of magic in that hot bowl of soup which gives instant warmth on a chilly evening. To keep the chill at bay, I decided to start this 7-day vegetarian soup antidote in my kitchen to take revenge from the chill outside.

No wonder, it can work as a detox and cleanse diet for those who already have their new year resolutions set for the weight-loss.

Are you all ready for the 7-day long Soup Therapy with me?

So,lets get started with these great soup bowls full of wonderful flavors and packed with brilliant ingredients that are good for your body. They’re sure to warm up your kitchen with pleasing aromas and keep you feeling healthy and full of energy. A quick tip before proceeding is to keep the vegetable stock ready in advance which can be used over the week.

So, here I kick-off the “Soup Therapy Day-1”

Great work!

I love to read gingeritup articles because it’s everything which you can relate to. The recipes so presentable and delicious yet so easy and simple ingredients and the lil intros which Mani writes to describe the recipe makes you connect with it. The other articles on gingeritup I find very honest and sincere . Rendezvous series is an inspiring unique initiative which she has started which I haven’t seen anywhere else . Overall, I admire Mani for she is so talented and a multitasker.
