Tip of the Day

"Use the water of boiled vegetables for gravy,doing so you get more flavour and you don't lose the nutrients which otherwise drain off with water.."

*Soup for your good health....


Its so good to be blogging once again. Keeping in mind the saying "Health is Wealth",today I am posting a healthy soup recipe. This soup contains a combination of healthy vegetables which help to maintain the good health of your body as well as your heart. It is rich in fibre and many nutrients and one more thing.................it doesn't taste bad at all :D !!!!
Healthy soup

Ingredients:
  • Beet - 1,medium (Dont remove the skin and don't discard the beet leaves,use them.They are also good for your health)
  • Bottleguard- 1 cup (cut in big pieces)

  • Ginger- 1 small piece
  • Garlic (optional)- 1 clove
  • Black pepper powder- 1 tsp
  • Salt - To taste

Click the vegetables to know more about them and their health benefits.

Method:

  • Pressure cook the vegetables (Beet,bottlegourd and spinach) with very less water and let them cool.
  • Remove the skin of beet and put the vegetables in the blender.

  • Add salt, ginger and garlic pieces.Add water if required.
  • Blend them thoroughly.

This recipe is my entry to the WYF - Salad/Starter/Soup event hosted by Easycrafts of Simple Indian Food blog.



I find this recipe very apt for the 'Eat Healthy Fight Diabetes' contest hosted by Sangeeth of Art of cooking indian food.So here it goes......


Note:

* I prefer to keep the soup oil free.You can season it with cumin and mustard seeds..

* Individuals with already existing and untreated kidney or gallbladder problems or those who have a tendency to develop kidney stones may want to avoid eating beet and spinach or take your doctors advice first.
