Soup is an unusual dish that gives you an infinite number of possible combinations of flavors. Depending on what ingredients it forms, it can act as a full-blown dinner, light dinner or snack during the day. Soup for breakfast? Why not?

How to cook wholesome soups?
On the soup diet, the whole menu can be built only on the basis of soups. Do not add cream to them, do not use broths on the bones. Before adding to the pan, the vegetables can be fried on a small amount of olive oil or rapeseed oil. The addition of fat increases the absorption of certain vitamins.
