Baby corn, Mushroom and Rosemary Soup

Mushroom babycorn soup2

About:

This soup was exactly what I needed when I was feeling down. It reminded me of home, of chilly winters.

Anyway, let’s talk soup. If you ask me, eating soup while being down is just as important as cold meds and plenty of sleep, It has magical healing powers, I’m sure of it.we are mixing it up with lots of rosemary, mushrooms and baby corn . Hearty, filling, and totally comforting.

Made with low-fat evaporated milk, low-fat milk can also be used but evaporated milk added a bit more creamy texture. however you could use milk or just not add any extra dairy at all. your favourite vegetables and a touch of rosemary, this is nutritious, invigorating and comforting.

Health benefits:

Rosemary was traditionally used to help alleviate muscle pain, improve memory, boost the immune and circulatory system, and promote hair growth.
