Autumn is all about comfort and cozy food and this super creamy soup is a delicious combo of nutritious and comforting ingredients, perfect for a healthy midweek family meal.

Also being Halloween so close now, I’ve decided to give it a spooky look by using kefir.

Do you like it?🥰

A spider-web made of kefir was a huge success with the kids and we even had a little family competition as we all tried out to make designs on our soups.

I find this is also a great bonding activity in addition to get the kids more involved in the food they are eating. Having fun with food could also help with picky eaters.

Will you give this soup idea a go?
