This classic dynamic duo is fast and easy to make, offers lots of variety for pairing options, and leftovers from big batches of soup can be easily frozen and reheated for a quick and healthy lunch.
It’s no wonder these seven plant-based recipes are some of Silver Hills Bakery’s top family favourites. These easy, healthy soups and sandwiches can be mixed and matched to your liking.
