Spinach gravy with noodle soup – Vegan

 

Spinach Soup new

About:

Noodles is served in a spicy, delicious, flavoursome spinach soup with mushroom and baby corn. Haven’t used any cream/dairy in this soup.

Spinach soup is highly nutritious, fresh and appealing for its attractive bright green colour and can be prepared in many ways according to your choice.

This fresh soup is wonderfully nutritious and can be served as a starter or lunchtime meal   by adding noodles. Adding noodles helps to attract kids as most of them love noodles. So this soup is perfect to include even in kids lunch item menu.
