With that thought in mind, I came up with my own version of this mouth-watering and flavorsome soup. Lately, I have been really obsessed with noodles. I want to eat them so often that I have lost count of how many times I have had them in the past one month. Yet again, I feel the urge to add them in soup as well. So let us head to the kitchen. Once you have all your vegetables washed, cleaned, and chopped, you will have your soup ready in a jiffy!!! This is what you will need.
