On a chilly winter’s evening and after a long day at work, we don’t feel like making an extravagant meal with a lot of moving parts. That is why January is dedicated to being National Soup Month. Soup is ideal for whipping up in a hurry with minimal ingredients. Not only can soup be delicious and nutritious, but it’s warming and wholesome for the whole family.
