Carrot Potato Soup


It has been a long time since I posted a recipe in my Slim N Trim category. Also some time ago my friend Vinaya asked me for recipe of soups. However the thing is in my home we like our soups with a sourish taste. Corn soup is not our type. Spinach soup is what we like. Tomato is the crowned king in soups.

This soup that I am presenting here is some thing I derived from carrots and potatoes and some cilantro that is common in the kitchen. These days I avoid cooking anything fresh in the evenings coz we end up eating more. So this cooking in the morning once and just adding something lite in the evening is helping me go healthy. I am able to sleep well yet wake up early and fresh from a good rest.

It is such a lovely soup. All you need is:

Ingredients

2 big carrots
1 small potato
1 handful cilantro
1 green chili
salt to taste

Optional
Lime
chat masala

Boil the carrots and potato. You can save energy by putting it with other things when you are setting up your pressure cooker. They can be refrigerated and used when you want.

Peel and clean boiled potato. Remember the carrots need to be first cleaned and then boiled.

Now puree all the carrots, potato, cilantro and green chili with salt in the juicer. Adjust consistency to your liking with water. Pour it out into a saucepan and heat up before serving. Serve in your favorite soup cup or bowl.

Enjoy it warm. A dash of lime and some chat masala gives it a nice zing too.

Hope this post brings back Vinaya to my blog. She's been reading but not catching up much.
