One of my delights during our cooler months is making up new soups that are super healthy, tasty, economical and not complicated.
I prefer to use ingredients in season and find that one can live well on the tastiest of dishes and with little outlay.
Although I am not a vegetarian, this recipe is perfect for vegans.
It is not complicated and of course you can add any vegetable, or more of the same.
For me this captures the two main flavours, tomatoes and zucchinis, with a touch of turmeric.
Most of my created recipes are trial and error and not always to measurement. But I have to say if there is any error I am not aware of it as I enjoy every dish.
Hope you do as well.
