Making your own soup is so easy. And tastes so much better than the pre-packed and wrapped liquids you can buy at the supermarket!

Add some extra vegetables / beans / nuts / seeds / rice / noodles or anything else to make your dinner extra satisfying.

Grill a few slices of bread, choose your favourite bread spread and dine away.

Enjoy your evening 🥘!
