So here is my simple veggie soup, that comes to my rescue when I have left over vegetables, when I am too lazy to cook, and when I feel I should have something light and healthy yet filling.
Making a soup with vegetables, needless to say, is a great way to get kids and adults alike to consume vegetables. According to the rainbow diet, the more variety in colours your vegetables have, the better its nutritious value. While I am not a fan of just soup for a meal, paired with some toasted bread, it’s quite filling and sets you up to tackle the rest of the day.

Beans – 6

1.Cut all the vegetables in tiny pieces, add sufficient water (approx. 1 cup) and boil till its cooked.
2. Once the veggies are done, keep the pan open and bring to boil on sim. Mix the cornflour with some water and add to this. Chop the garlic in tiny pieces and add to the mixture at this point.
3. Bring to boil, adjusting the water consistency. Add salt just before removing from fire.
4. Serve hot, mixed with soya sauce (I love the sour flavour it gives out)
I know this recipe seems very crude but I am always satisfied after a bowl of this. I know many of you out there are seasoned cooks, so all suggestions to make this better, is welcome (with more or less the same ingredients, please) 🙂
