Cozy feeling: vegetable soup

soup 7

Last week I was in bed with bronchitis. This constant weather madness made me really sick. Since I’m a singer, that is probably one of the worst things that can happen to me. I’m ok now so there is no need for a pity party. (Some hugs might be welcomed.)

Every time I get sick I make this soup also called “minestrone”. I like to eat it when I’m not sick too because it is also low-calorie, has tons of vegetables and is really healthy.
