5 easy vegetarian soups to make this winter
These soups are hearty and wholesome
The winter weather has us yearning for comforting, wholesome and hearty dishes and a perfect option that ticks all these boxes is a flavourful soup.
While pre-packaged soups are available in stores, they don’t compare to fresh soup made from scratch. Many of us are feeling the pinch with general cost of living but soups are a filling and affordable family meal.
Prepared soups can be frozen and reheated – so large batches can be made in advance, cutting down time spent in the kitchen and also reducing overall grocery expenses.
These five easy-to-prepare vegetarian soup recipes call for no meat but are just as hearty and delicious.

Is FANTASTIC the name of the ramen noodles that came first? It looks as if the name has been left out. If so, where can one buy them? I have never seen them on sale.
