My Story – Losing a Loved One to Finding My True Calling

A Colombian Comfort Food; Changua

By Rupal Ganatra

It was raining heavily outside today, and together with a craving for hot comfort food, came the realization that I couldn’t walk to the shops… I reviewed the contents of my pantry, and wondered could one make soup with milk and eggs?

It turns out that not only can one do that, but it is simple delicious comfort in a bowl ☺️. Inspired by the Colombian recipe for Changua; milk & egg soup, I headed into my wee kitchen and whipped up a batch.
