Vegetable creme soup- a healthy start to your day!

The creme soup of fresh vegetables- truly yummy and healthy!
When you are in the verge of loosing those extra pounds, you might wonder what to have as a right diet food? Well, it should be a right balance of all the necessary macronutrients, yet should contain the least amount of carbohydrate and fats. Looks like it’s the most wanted recipe that any diet conscious friend of mine might be looking forward to.

Ingredients: (for preparation of 3-4 persons)

Beet root (2 medium sized de-skinned and cut into medium pieces),

Carrot (1 ½ medium sized de- skinned and cut into medium pieces),

Green peas (a little quantity),

Tomatoes (2 medium sized grated),

Onion (1 medium sized one grated),

Butter (salted, 1 scoop),

Garlic paste (2 teaspoon),

Salt according to taste,

Dried thyme (a pinch),

Black pepper powder (½ teaspoon).

 

Preparation:

  1. Boil the beetroot and carrot in 2 cups of water in a pressure cooker.
  2. After 20 minutes you may remove it, let it cool down and out the content in a blender thereby obtaining an even vegetable puree.
  3. Grate onion and tomatoes and keep separately.
  4. Melt butter in a stock pan; add garlic paste, onion and tomato into it. Add the dried thyme to it. Cook nicely till it becomes an even mixture.
  5. Add the vegetable puree in it. Add salt according to taste.
  6. Remove in a soup bowl and top it with black pepper.

Enjoy the delicacy. You may have it with bread or even as a diet food. It will be a wonderful treat in winter evenings.
