3. Almond and mushroom soup
With subtle flavours of finely chopped mushrooms, almonds, pepper, butter, cream and milk, this luscious soup is all you need to have a comfortable chilly winter evening with your loved ones.
4. Beetroot soup
Nothing beats the seasonal vegetable! Beetroot is a winter must, packed with multiple nutrients. And when combined with bottle gourd and a whole lot of spices, there is nothing that can come close. With a hint of salt and pepper, beetroot soup can be served both cold or hot.
5. Carrot ginger soup
Another winter special, carrot is packed with health benefits that we must reap all through the season – and one of the best ways of doing that is by having a warm bowl of soup. It comes with the added benefits of ginger that is known to be one of the best remedies for cold, which is common during the season.
