Low carb Creamy Soup for Dinner (No milk no cream no maida); Fitmeal@15 Episode 43

Soups are known to be the best appetizers! So, today’s recipe is “Low carb Creamy Vegan Soup”.
I am a big fan of soups and love experimenting with them, so here is one of the very new, healthy, and my current favourite soup recipe.
Usually, restaurant made soups are composed of creams, maida, and of course milk, in which two out of three ingredients doesn’t sounds healthy. But this soup is free of the three ingredients and is an awesome option for vegans too.
