It's officially winter! And there are few things greater than a steaming bowl of chunky, wholesome veggie soup on a cold winter's day - and this soup is no exception. My sister, Peta, made this a few weeks ago and it was without a doubt one of the most delicious soups I have ever eaten in my whole life (with the exception of Mum's classic pumpkin soup). It is simple, quick, cheap and super healthy, being packed full of nourishing veggies and spices to keep your body running smoothly.
