Broccoli Soup
Broccoli has lot of nutritional benefits and therapeutic properties. It has a high level of fiber and rich source of vitamin C. It is very good for people who are diabetic. Usually, I cook 2 to 3 broccoli recipes a week. However, I am not a big fan of broccoli. My husband Gj is. Few years ago, whenever I use mixed vegetables for any korma, I use broccoli. Also when I make any Chinese dishes, I use them. Nowadays, Gj buys them in bulk, so I have to use them all soon. For Sanvi I make Broccoli Cheddar Soup and for us, I make some broccoli side dishes for rice. I got this recipe from my friend, and I think she wrote it down from a cookery show. I tried it last week, and it tasted good. I thought I will share it with my readers this week. So here you go….

Cabbage Soup

I am happy to say that this was the first soup I learned during my initial days of cooking. What a simple and easy recipe! I could not remember where I learned this dish from, but it is always a hit in my kitchen. This dish will always be in my list when I have guests at home.

This soup just eases out my stress when guests come because it can never go wrong. You can always adjust the taste by increasing or decreasing the quantity of ghee, milk and pepper. Garnishing the soup with spring onions is optional. If I have them, I use it. When you taste the soup, it will be difficult for you to tell that it is made of cabbage. My hubby and I would often ask our guest to find out what soup it is, and they would not able to find out at all. Cabbage lovers, who love making Simple Cabbage Curry, Cabbage Capsicum Curry, and Cabbage Kofta, please try this recipe and you will fall in love with it.

Ingredients

Milk – 2 cups
Cabbage – 2 cups
Black pepper powder (milagu thool) – 1/2 to 1 teaspoon

Ghee – 2 teaspoons

Note. The ingredients shown will vary with the original quantity.

Preparation

1. Heat 2 teaspoons of Ghee in a non-stick pan. Add roughly chopped cabbage, and fry well till the cabbage is cooked and becomes soft.

2. Allow the cooked cabbage to cool down completely. Then grind the cabbage with 1/4 cup of water to a smooth paste. If you still have bits and pieces of cabbage here and there, it is okay.

3. In the same non-stick pan, boil the milk. When the milk starts to boil, add the ground cabbage. Let the milk start to thicken. Then add ground pepper and salt. Once it reaches the soup consistency, then switch off the stove.

Garnish with chopped spring onion leaves.

Vegetable Sweet Corn Soup

Right from my childhood days, I just can’t resist Sweet Corn Soup. It is my favorite soup. I tried to make at home two years back, and it came out okay. I then changed few ingredients and tried out again last week. Voila…it came out very well. You can also add soya sauce in this recipe, but I decided that all purpose flour would be enough. You can try out the same recipe with different vegetables. I used to miss this soup very much for the past few years. I never find it here in any of the Indian restaurants, but now no regrets. I can make it at home with available ingredients as it is very simple and easy.
