Mixed Vegetable Soup | Soup Recipes

This veg soup is my MIL's specialty soup and she used to make this often for the mid-morning drink. This really is a great appetizer and a healthy soup with all the veggies. 

Serves: 2 to 3
Broccoli stems - 3/4 cups
String Beans - 6 - chopped
Cabbage - chopped 1 cup
Carrot - 2 medium sized - chopped
Tomato - chopped - 2 tbsp
Pearl onions - 4 - chopped
Curry leaves - about 10 - chopped
Cilantro / Coriander leaves - 6 to 8 twigs - chopped
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Pepper corns - 1/2 tsp or to taste
Salt - to taste

Add all the ingredients in a large microwave proof bowl with 3/4 cups of water and microwave for 10 to 12 mins, stirring twice in between. Mine was a 900 W MW. Adjust the time based on the power of your MW oven. When done, allow to cool and puree in a blender. Add required amount of water to the puree based on the desired thickness for the soup to the microwave proof bowl and reheat for 3 to 5 min. The soup is ready to serve hot.
Some facts:
Broccoli & Cabbage - high in Vitamin C and dietary fiber
Stringbeans - Vitamin A and C
Carrot - Vitamin A
Tomato - lycopene (antioxidant)
Curry leaves - rich in iron
Cilantro - high in magnesium, calcium, antioxidants
