Spiced Vegetable Moroccan Soup

The weather has turned distinctly chilly, so we’ve turned to soups for our lunches. I love soups as they really are easy to make, they can be an easy way to get vegetables and great nurtitious food into the family and they heat up the insides. This soup was a bit of an experiment, it has a different edge to it with the cinnamon, cumin and lemon. It really does work and makes a fresh, tingly on the tastebuds soup. 

To make this a complete lunch we ate ours wih rice cakes and finished with a yoghurt.

It’s officially cold, freezing, cold here. In fact it’s snowing! Here’s my perfect snow day soup recipe. It’s packed full of veggies to boost that immunity, the beans are filling and satisfying, ¬†and being a soup, it’ll keep you warm. The pasta makes this a complete meal so no bread is needed. Great for feeding hungry families and using up left over veggies.
