Description

A deliciously filling soup rich in flavours that packs a powerful punch for immunity and digestive health.

Chestnuts contain the least amount of fat compared with other nuts but are high in fibre, beta-carotene, folate and vitamin C. They taste great with mushrooms, which are known to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects so great for boosting immunity.
