Sprouted Mung Soup

Here we are. Today is the first day of our mega marathon for protein rich dishes. Like I said yesterday, I want to showcase as many protein sources for vegetarians as possible. There will be 2-3 recipes with eggs but no more. So, the plan is to have lentil based dishes for the two days this week and the whole of next week. We start … Continue reading Sprouted Mung Soup


Carrot Soup

Carrot soup has been on my list since the beginning of this mega marathon but I kept postponing it. I would buy carrots with the intention to make the soup but I would end up using it for upma or pulao and postpone it yet again. If nothing else, my daughter would eat up the carrots leaving me staring at the empty fridge tray. Finally, the … Continue reading Carrot Soup

Lemon Coriander Soup

Some soups are delightfully simple and flavoursome. Lemon coriander is one such. It is made with ingredients which are usually available at all times at home. It makes a wonderful start to a meal by teasing your taste buds but at the same time not killing your appetite. Serves 3 Recipe adapted from here WHAT WE NEED Oil               … Continue reading Lemon Coriander Soup

Apple and Almond Soup

I am not a huge fan of cooking fruits preferring to have them raw as they are supposed to be. But sometimes exceptions need to be made, especially when you have a beautiful symphony of apples with tomatoes, gooseberry and carrots topped generously with almonds. Exception accepted. I had a couple of apples sitting on the counter top for 4 days without the daughter or … Continue reading Apple and Almond Soup

Beetroot Soup

We can’t have a soup theme and not make beetroot soup. I was contemplating the popular Borscht Soup but due to many reasons (mostly laziness) I decided against it, at least for now. I love to eat beetroot but making it not my favorite task. It gets its colour all over my kitchen which sports a bloodied look after any beetroot dish attempt. I spend … Continue reading Beetroot Soup

Pea & Mint Soup

I have missed my peas terribly. Fresh peas were never available in Malaysia and I have a grudge against frozen ones. Don’t ask me why. It is a grudge, it is not supposed to be based on cold logic and reasonable arguments. Since they are my favorite and I could not have them for the longest time, I have been buying peas in Bangalore almost … Continue reading Pea & Mint Soup

Lentil Ginger Soup

If I ever get into a situation where I can have only one flavour to cook with, I would take ginger. It’s simply my favourite ingredient and finds its way into almost all my dishes.  Today’s soup is a delectable combination of lentils, ginger and vegetables. My guess is this recipe should work with most vegetables though I went for the classic onion, spring onion … Continue reading Lentil Ginger Soup
