2 Cozy Winter Soups Recipes That Can Make Anyone Love Veggies

Everyone's starting to cuddle up under a blanket craving cozy winter recipes. Soup is not just a Ramadan staple, it's a winter staple as well. Winter soups are something else, a perfect way to start a meal and sometimes even a warming midnight snack. I don't like vegetable soup, I actually hate it, but my mom once tricked me into having one and wouldn't tell me what the ingredients were until I tried it first. I tried it, loved it and couldn't believe it was a vegetable soup. I must say this yummy vegetable soup recipe could convert anyone, even me who can't stand cabbage. 

I also added a broccoli soup recipe that my team mate wrote about a few days ago by Sally Fouad. It perfectly fits the cozy winter theme and is a great way to add broccoli into your diet
