This is a healthy and a nutritious soup which is light on the stomach but helps satiate your hunger pangs. It has the goodness of whole lot of veggies like green papaya, yam, broad beans, tapioca, eggplants, green plantain, sweet potato, etc.
More veggies can be added to this delicious one-pot meal. I had to make with whatever was readily available. We usually have this hearty soup for dinner along with some bread sticks.
