Broccoli and Mushroom Soup

12 Nov

I really feel the need to share with you our Punjabi lifestyle in India. It is all about outings, and grand ceremonies. It is another glamorous world where Punjabi’s love to splurge on good clothes, dazzling jewellery and delectable food. Talking about Food, it is the most important factor in every Punjabi household. It is said that every Punjabi lives his life ‘king size’. Food being the core of every Punjabi household. Most of them have chicken almost everyday and very often outings. So there is a lot of calorie in-take all the time in terms of desserts. fried etc.

Well this is exactly the story of my house. My husband and I fall into the same trap. It becomes hard to ignore social outings and avoid all the greasy and junk food. To be honest I really want to give up all this food for a while and stick to something that is healthy and full of nutrition. With this thought I started preparing Broccoli and Mushroom Soup.

Serves 4:

Ingredients used:

1 1/2 cup small florets of broccoli

1 1/2 cup mushrooms

1 small onion

3 cup vegetable broth

1 cup milk

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

salt to taste

Boil 3 cups of water.

Throw some mushrooms and broccoli into it.

Cook for 1-2 mins. Strain it and keep the water.

Saute some onions till its transparent.

Make a puree in the blender of mushroom, onion and broccoli. Adding a little water as required.

Mix the puree with the vegetable broth.

Bring it to boil. Season it with salt and pepper.

As it boils again.

Add milk and leave it boil again.

If you want you could add cream instead of milk but for healthier reasons I choose milk.

Garnish with cilantro!

We enjoyed this delicious soup with some breads!!

Yummy exquisite combination of broccoli and mushrooms!
