Finally, I and my kids are become a victim of the weather, the autumn here have not yet reaching it peak cold windy cold, but here I am, being a friend with tissue box *hehe. This dishes are cheap, warm and comforting, yet really easy to make, suitable by the end of month, when all the money are already run out, you getting cold and want comfort hug from the food *hehe.
I made this soup with the vegetable left in my fridge, staple stock of my fridge, carrot, yellow onion, broccolini (I just had it, you can used broccoli of course), and celery, that’s all, all season cheap, nutritious vegetable.
I serve this with simplicity, my kids are not fans of complicated flavour, not yet, which is good for them, I learn a lot to love simplicity for them, from there I can practice eating consciously and it enhance my tastebud. Please try it, now I can really appreciate like crush tomatoes alone, how it stand out, in my home made pizza (recipe later ;))
