Aromatic and sumptuous, the Vaal, French Beans and Cauliflower Soup is fit to be a meal in its own right. Loaded with ample veggies ranging from French beans and cabbage to cauliflower and tomatoes, not to forget nutritious lima beans and green peas, this wholesome soup is extremely flavourful despite not using onion and garlic. Sautéed celery and a garnish of fresh parsley impart a rich and fresh aroma to the soup.

- Add the cabbage, tomatoes, green peas and beans-water mixture, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
