The weather starts to change. The temperatures drop, clouds cover the sky, and it is rainy again. When that happens, the cravings for warm and comfort foods start kicking in. My usual go-to recipes in these cases are soups. They are easy and fast to make, flavorful, satisfying, and if you use simple ingredients like the ones used in this recipe, you can eat more and more without having any guilt afterward, knowing this one is actually good and nutritious for your body.
This Zucchini Soup is a great source for important vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, vitamin A, C, and K.
