Hearty soup and foodaholics in the news…

Time is running and years are flying. Sister was in town and her one month visit is already over.  Both my siblings will be based in Uncle Sam’s land for the next few years, another reason to take holiday now 🙂 With winters settling in Delhi it’s time for hearty soups and salads. The quality of the vegetables becomes better and one doesn’t need to drive to INA to get some. This season also brings in lots of Cold, cough and flu. It’s my second time in past 3 weeks to be loved by flu, so that is another reason why so many experiments are being made with “liquid foods”. As you enjoy a steaming bowl of homemade soup, you may not ponder over the “profits” (as mom says) it brings to you. Soup has collective demand in our family because of its convenience, simplicity and variety and also coz we are a vegetarian family.

So here is the recipe of the soup that I just made up and she turned into one of the nicest meals!
About half a litre of water   
3-4 tomatoes (chopped)
5-6 cloves of garlic (crushed)
2-3 black pepper (crushed)
1 onion (chopped)

Put all these items in a big pot and let it simmer for about an hour or so. Puree and strain.

Add Chopped vegetables (whatever is in your fridge really!!)

My mother added “ghiya”-gourd, beans, carrots, broccoli, green peas, mushrooms, baby corn and even cauliflower. Lastly she added chopped spinach. It boosts your soup’s vitamin, mineral and antioxidant content which helps fend off-season colds. . I swear if she had a chance she would have added ladyfingers(bhindi) too!! Season it with salt and lots and lots of pepper (clear’s your sinuses). Give it a simmer and then garnish with more burnt garlic and fresh coriander. Sip and enjoy!

Vegetable Soup
So trick to make this soup real yummy – add a spoon full of pesto (we had some leftover you can even use the canned one).Not only is it my faith but factually also Soups can prevent diseases and add much needed nutrition to your general diet. And most of all its mmmyyyuuuumm good!
Foodaholics got covered in few publications sharing the same with you!

Hope everyone had a good Diwali🙂
