Soup time

Mom makes different soups for me to enjoy. Tomato, Carrot, Spinach, Mutton, Chicken, Beans, Mixed vegetable, Broccoli, Red gram, Moong dal -Carrot soup and many more. I am sharing just a simple one here. Cauliflower and Carrot soup. It tasted yummy. This is the first time I had Cauliflower and I liked it.

You want to know how mom made it? Here is the recipe. If you have small kids like me, try making and feeding this soup to your baby. I am sure she/ he will like it. When you make it, please share your lil one’s experience.

Ingredients:

Cauliflower 2 florets
(don’t add stem just the upper portion of the flower to be added. We the small babies can not digest the stem and we get tummy pain)

Carrot 4 medium sized cored and cubed. (do not add center yellow part of the carrot)

Onion half of a small one ( Mom uses shallots)
Garlic clove 1
Butter just a little
Salt to taste
Cumin powder a pinch
2 small glasses of water

Preparation method:

Heat a pan, add a small cube of butter. Once it heats up add mashed garlic clove and finely chopped onions.Saute them till onions turn pink to translucent.Add cleaned and blanched cauliflower and carrot cubes and saute for 3 minutes.Add some salt and water and bring it to boil. Once veggies are boiled, remove from heat, blend the veggies / mash them. Strain and here you go to taste the yummy yummy soup.

P.S. That nice yellow color is due to boiled carrots. Mom hasn’t added any turmeric or food colour to it 🙂
