Mexican healing soup, vegan

This is the Mexican soup is the soup that every mom will give its kids when sick. I remember coming from school and seeing a huge pot of soup on the stove and asking myself who was sick. Now, for me, this vegan Mexican chicken soup is total comfort food, I prepare it for the days that I need a cozy meal, very cold days or the days that we will all have hectic schedules.

The original “Mexican caldo de pollo” recipe is made the same way but they add a piece of poultry to cook with the vegetables. The main difference with this version for vegan “caldo de pollo” is that I do not add the chicken. Other than that it is exactly the same.

All of the flavors and good for this vegan Mexican soup come from the vegetables and the crazy good toppings at the end.
