Vegetable Soup with Chicken, Tortellini and Parmesan
Our vegetable soup with chicken, tortellini and parmesan is a healthy filling! The chicken has a high protein and low fat content. The protein is easily digestible in the body and is used, among other things, for building muscles. Broccoli strengthens the eyesight due to the vitamin A it contains and has a positive effect on the skin. In addition, it scores with a lot of vitamin C, which supports the immune system.
Chili and paprika contain the spicy substance capsaicin, which can effectively fight bacteria and fungi and promotes blood circulation.
This colourful dish can be complemented with various seasonal vegetables or prepared with tortellini with a different filling.
