Vegetable Soup with Ginger

This hearty and healing Vegetable Soup with Ginger is what you need for those rainy days.

Whether it's cold outside or you don't feel well, there's really something good about serving a bowl of a hot soup.

Why Ginger?

Ginger is an effective antibacterial and antiviral when fresh, that can help your body fight off cold and flu viruses. That's why I also call this soup as a "healing soup".

What vegetables are best in a vegetable soup?

This vegetable soup is versatile. You can use any vegetables you prefer, such as broccoli, cauliflower, spinach etc.

Can I freeze Vegetable Soup?

Since there are potatoes in the soup, I wouldn't recommend that.

What can I serve with the soup?

You can either serve some bread or breadsticks.
