Black Eyed Peas-Potato Soup: Super Healthy :)

It is freezing outside :( This time summer did not last that long here in the Midwest. On days like this I crave for something warm, authentic and tasty at the same time. There are so many different ways to make Nepali soup and in my opinion it is because of the varieties of spices we have. Best thing is these spices are all natural and therefore will provide natural remedy to minor cold and cough. Here you go everyone, warm or cold, enjoy the step by step process to make Black Beans Potato Soup :D
