Recipe for Healthy Vegetable Soup
Feeling the hunger pangs at odd hours? Nothing can be better than a whole bowl of steaming hot soup. A good source of vitamins and minerals, soup is also high on fibre.
Key ingredients: Two onions (peeled and diced); one carrot (finely chopped); ½ cup fresh peas; finely chopped beans; few bunches of cauliflower florets; few spinach leaves.
Spices and side ingredients: a pinch of salt; a pinch of pepper powder; half teaspoon ginger-garlic paste; pinch of cumin powder (optional).
Surprise tip: you can also add a maggie-masala sachet to make the soup tangier!
Steam all the vegetables together with half litre water, in the pressure cooker. Check whether the vegetables are tender or not. Add the side ingredients. Stir the mix well; let it simmer for ten to twelve minutes over low heat, with the lid on. Do not strain the soup.
Nutri-check: Beans and carrots besides being rich in vitamin A, adds roughage to your diet.
