Slow cooked soups are a great way to get many nutrients in the one hit. This soup is a great meal for the cooler months. It's packed full of gut loving fibre and ingredients that support healthy detoxification. The nutritional yeast is an inactive yeast so will not cause Candida. In fact this yeast adds a cheesy flavour and many vitamins and minerals such as B 12, protein and fibre.
