    I love creamy dishes – be it soups, curries anything. This is the perfect soup for me – so creamy and delicious. I want to try it out with chickpeas or tofu.

    Chicken soup with fresh herbs looks so creamy and delicious. Enjoyed reading your soup recipes which is different from normal ones

    Chicken Florentine soup is so easy to prepare and looks so exotic. Addition of fresh herbs is a nice idea however, since only herbs I use on a regular basis are cilantro and mint, I always end up using other herbs in a dried form.
