Milk vegetable soup

milk vegetable soup

Milk vegetable soup (piena dārzeņu zupa) is a must have for summer when carrots, potatoes, peas and cabbage are just coming in season.  But really, it can be made any time of the year as quick and easy comfort food. It is kids favourite and tastes like my childhood when served with buttered white bread.

    So happy you posted this recipe. My mum used to always make it but I had no idea how to even start it. Will definitely try soon.

    I’m in Australia and my mum made this too. She was from Estonia. It was the best “cheap” meal she could make, with the vegetables coming straight from our garden. I will try and get my kids to enjoy this too. Thanks for reminding me of a great easy to use dish.
