Struggling to get green veggies into your family’s diet?
This delicious winter warming soup is a quick, easy, healthy (and sneaky!) way of getting in a whole feast of super greens and they’ll love it! I often throw a bit of shaved parmasen over the top for an extra tasty treat.
It’s also packed with folate and essential nutrients for all those Mum’s to be.
