In this recipe I add lots of veggies and potatoes and flavour the soup with tomatoes and basil. I also always add ground turmeric to all my soups for an added antioxidant boost and pop of colour. I served my soup with freshly baked bread with mashed avocado and a kale salad with tahini curry dressing. The happiness!
I wish you all a great weekend!
