Veggie soup with egg and cilantro. Because after the storm it comes calm and as I prepared for the arrival of Hurricane Irma, I dreamed that it was Monday and the sun would shine for everyone.
Because I wanted to see the rainbow and this soup is a rainbow of colors and textures and flavors.
Because after 36 hours without electricity I wanted a good bowl of hot soup and when I was a little girl nothing comforted me better than a good veggie soup with cilantro.
Because I am happy and grateful that we are gradually returning to normal, I decided to make myself one of my favorite soups and eat it with egg, and then share the recipe with you.
I hope you like it and always keep in mind that, no matter how adverse the circumstance you are in, the sun always will shine for everyone.
