I was in love with this soup when I saw it on a television show recently, I know my family will surely love them.
Spring soup cooked with your choice of vegetables with a bit of onion and seasoned with freshly ground black pepper makes a refreshing, surprisingly hearty meal.
An addition of milk will soften and enrich the soup To jazz up this soup you may add a dash of hot sauce, some shreds of cooked bacon/ chicken or a sprinkle of fresh chopped herbs like parsley or thyme.

2.5 cups mixed vegetables (carrot, french bean, cauliflower)
2 onion chopped
