This soup had all the necessary nutrients in it and it is so easy to make. I ate with half a bowl of cooked fragrant white rice in it while my Quay Lo ate with crusty bread. This is another quick and simple meal for a lazy evening. Definitely “An in-front of TV” meal. Use disposable bowls and cutleries if you don’t even want to get up and wash dishes.
I do not recommend that you do this often because I do not want to be responsible for you turning into a couch potato. I think once in a while is fun. One thing I would like to mention though is not to snack in front of the TV. Studies have proven that people who watch TV and snack at the same time consume many calories without knowing it and tend to overeat. The chances of you gaining weight is very high. I have told you so, if you don’t listen, don’t blame me. LOL!
