Vegetable Soup

As a kid , Soup was something which i never wanted to have even if i was famished. But as i grew up , i started enjoying this warm and filling food which is 'kind' to the stomach. One can experiment a lot with soups , as far as the ingredients are concerned. You can add anything which goes well with your taste buds. Right from vegetables to lentils to chicken and what not, you can do wonders even with the basic ingredients available. I love this simple but quick and tasty soup which can be made even when you have a real long day at work. All you need is:
