At home I love treating my children making their favourite dishes and soups are my daughter’s favourite things to eat, her favourite soup is fideo soup, but today I decided to make something more “nutritious” as my mum would say.
This vegetable soup is delicious and easy to make, so it is perfect when you are in a hurry and you can’t find what to make for lunch or dinner. In Mexico we usually have a soup together with rolled up tortillas stuffed with slices of avocado, mayo and if you like spicy food, some spicy salsa. So at the end the soup becomes a very filling meal.
