So, talking about the cold weather, why not to make a delicious soup recipe? Is there a better food for the chilly days? I guess not. Nothing beats a warm and delicious bowl of homemade hot soup when the temperatures are below zero. It is so easy to make and healthier than canned soup. Those cans should be forgotten forever, right? Making soup is so easy. There’s really no excuse for buying canned soups.





This filling Pasta Soup with Sweet Potato and Peas is full of fiber, low in fat, and a quick-and-easy go-to meal. This time I decided to add brown rice pasta to make this soup even more of a comfort food. For soup, we should use a small pasta. A good rule is the thinner the soup, the smaller the pasta. For broths and light soups, select from a large assortment of tiny shapes.
