This was fantastic! Soup is my love language in the colder months, and I love a creamy soup but hate how gritty a roux can be sometimes.
Today I tried this healthy delicious soup my mom made, I asked her for the recipes because I LOVED IT! and to share them with everyone who actually loves eating healthy, personally I don’t always eat healthy, but i am trying my best.
It’s very easy to make , and had all the nutrients you need to keep your body energized through out the day, or you can also make it it for dinner, it will refuel your body after a long tiring day.
My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
