Moroccoan Vegetable Pasta Soup18:40
Moroccan style vegetable and pasta soup ,Today's soup is blended with Moroccan flavors ,richness and spices.The vegetable pasta soup is one of the best soups that I recently tried for three days.Again,I made it in the slow cooker and as a Diabetic friendly meal but,believe me this soup will satisfy everyone's taste buds.My elder daughter fell in love with it and finished two big bowls. Otherwise,I would have to push her hard to finish the vegetables,but the one in the soup she ate all without forcing.I think because of the slow cooking the veggies tasted more delicious.
I adapted the recipe of Moroccan vegetable pasta soup from Betty Crocker and has tried it twice since.Little one is learning to speak and while giving her the soup(I kept a portion without paprika) I told her that it's a soup. The next day when she came into the kitchen,she asked "mamma souupp".While feeding her something is a big task ,I know what I can make for her often which is healthy too.
If you are looking for Diabetic friendly and Slow Cooker soups here are two of them-Brown Lentil Soup and Roasted Tomato Veg Soup.
