Mein Chow Soup
Recipe type: soups
The abundance of intensely flavoured fresh vegetables makes this soup rich, tasty and extremely satisfying without the use of too much oil. Oats have been added to thicken the soup as well as to add fibre to your diet. I find this soup an excellent remedy for a cold .... a hot bowlful usually chases way and congestion that accompanies a cold and rejuvenates my spirits.
