Sopa de verduras

Soups are very popular in Colombia. When I was a child, my mother made soup every day for lunch, whether we wanted it or not. Nowadays, soup is comfort food and I wish I could have my mother’s soup every day. When I go to Colombia I ask my mom to cook my favorite soups for me. We make a variety of both broth and cream soups. This vegetable soup or Sopa de Verduras is really easy and quick to make.

Buen provecho!
