Creamy Vegetable Soup -No Croutons Required



This is going to Lisa's no croutons event

Ingredients:
Chopped onion-2 cups
Garlic pods-2
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)
Milk-1/4 cup
Salt
Pepper
Oil-2 tsp

Method:
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.

  5. Why not somebody invent a software which can download this Soup and pour it to me in Chennai. It is raining in Chennai for the past two days and I want it right now. In which case i can as well have Anudivya's cake too.

  7. I make garlic bread by rubbin cut pieces onto the warm bread as well! The soup is too good.
    Try adding fat-free half-and-half milk instead of normal milk, it turns out really creamy.
    And yeah, letz pack up some soup and cake for your dad! :)

  14. Hi Mahima, There's nothing better than a bowl of creamy soup on a fall day, and cabbage and peas are an unusual but delicious-sounding combination. I love the color.
