We often go to a restaurant and have a soup as a starter or as an appetiser. Needless to say, soups are really healthy and have a lot of benefits. I personally love to have soups and especially in the monsoon or winter season. They serve to be a perfect evening snack. Also, this is the time when many people actually fall sick or come down with the flu. In such times, soup can actually do wonders. It is not very difficult to eat and you can get all the proteins that you need in that one bowl of soup.
Now, often I have seen people arguing about which soup is healthier, the vegetarian or the non- vegetarian one? While some argue that the vegetarians often miss on to the proteins that chicken provides, I think there are a few soups that can be as good!
So, today I am going to list of 3 of my favourite vegetarian soups and also I will tell you their benefits. And if you like them, you must try them out at your home as they are very simple to prepare.
- Tomato soup- as the name suggests, this is soup uses tomatoes as it primary ingredient. This is one of the most common soups and we all have tried it at least once in our lives.
