Warm up and boost your immunity with this soup

This takes me back to my childhood, one of my all time favourite winter warmers that my mum would make. I would have seconds… always!! It’s great just with the loaded vegetables and meatballs. Or you can add some little pasta/risoni to it for little extra filler.

Winter has arrived in Adelaide, and I'm thrilled for slow-cooked meals, hearty soups, and cozy baking days with the kids. 🍲❄️ Good food warms the body and nourishes the soul. It’s a special experience when made with love, shared with family, and filled with stories

4 clove crushed garlic

2 sprigs fresh thyme

Tbsp fresh crushed ginger (powder is fine too)
