Quick Vegetable Soup - Healthy Kids after School Snack Recipe


Vegetable soup - a quick version of soup that I always prefer to make whenever my kid loves or wants to have soup. I put together all her favorite veggies and boil with water + milk, season some S&P. Also I prefer to serve with slice of butter toasted bread along with soup to make a complete nutritious and tasty after school snack. In-spite of giving rice or roti again as a meal, I believe this would be a refreshing food and she gulps couple of bowl without saying no. Not only for kids even soup with loaf of bread can play a good role for early dinner to grown ups. Try this simple version of veg soup and let me know your feedback....
