(Guest Post) For some parents it’s a nightmare to get their kids to eat vegetables. When my daughter came along, I realized for the first time just how much of a pain I must have been to my blessed mother with my instant rejection of anything that remotely resembled any form of vegetables. However, my trick of coaxing my daughter to suspend the vendetta against vegetables became much easier when I discovered this recipe.

In fact, she ended up liking it so much that I made it conditional for her to have some vegetables twice a week if she wanted this soup on weekends. The arrangement has been happily working so far with no complaints on either side. I hope you will achieve similar or better success with this dish!

Now, whenever we talk of vegetable soup, the first thing that comes to mind are broccoli soup and tomato soup, but they tend to taste quite insipid to taste buds habituated in having them with a generous dose of butter and cream. A truly healthy easy vegetable soup recipe must try to replace those ingredients with healthier options. That is why at Recipezi.com we have tried to present you with an easy vegetable soup recipe that is filled to the brim with nutritious vegetables that supplies you with that much needed daily dosage of fiber and proteins. Besides they are super tasty and will make you forget your craving for meat in no time!
