    My family and I love this recipe! We usually have all these ingredients on hand and it is a quick recipe to make, both things I look for in a meal. We left out the pepper and garlic for my little kids the second time we made it and they thought it was delicious (one is vegetarian). This is one for the books!

    This soup was delicious. My picky kids even liked it. I made it with your naan bread. What a great meal. Thank you!

    1. You’re welcome Cindy, great idea to pair it with the Naan! It’s such a fun change, especially if the kids like it. Thank you for sharing,
