Creamy Vegetable Soup -No Croutons Required
This is going to Lisa's no croutons event
Chopped onion-2 cups
Frozen corn-1/4 cup
Chopped beans-1/4 cup
Chopped Cabbage-2 cups
Chopped Carrot-1/4 cup(I did not use it in this recipe)
Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Fry onions and garlic till they turn transparent.
Add cabbage, beans, corn and salt. Fry for a minute. Add enough water and pressure cook for 3 whistles. Using a hand blender, make a smooth paste. Pass the soup through a strainer(this step is optional). Add milk and bring the soup to boil. Sprinkle pepper and serve.
To go with this hearty soup, I made fragrant garlic scented bread(I used whole grain wheat bread).
For garlic bread:
Mix 1 tbsp of oil, 1 tbsp of soft butter, salt and pepper. Brush the bread with this mixture on both sides and toast till golden brown. Cut a garlic pod into 2 and use one piece to rub the sides of the bread.
