Be it chilly weather or you have a sniffle, cold or achy throat. Nothing can be more comforting than a piping hot vegetable soup with spices and herbs. This recipe is loaded with immunity-boosting vitamins and minerals to keep you going strong. There is no one way to prepare it. Add your favorite colorful veggies or herb according to your palate or keep it rather simple and stick with the basics. I sometimes add celery or cabbage for little change of taste. You can change quantity too to suit your taste. My husband likes more corn in his soup. I add corn starch to thickens the soup. You can omit it without minimizing its benefits
