When it comes to soup I love a good Vegetable clear soup. It’s hearty, it’s wholesome and it’s delicious.
A perfect light dinner time meal for someone like me. If you like a light dinner then this soup with some garlic bread is going to be your favorite.
Imagine all the goodness of soup minus the fuss.
To all those who often ask what is a clear soup?
A clear soup is a soup of boiled vegetables or any meat in any liquid untill its flavors are released. A clear soup does not contain any starch or any flavorings. It’s very good for those on a diet.
Every now and then I crave for some clear soup. Please be advised that this is my version of a clear soup.
So lets get started.
Directions to make Vegetable Clear Soup-
3 large tomatoes
3 large carrots
2-3 garlic cloves
1 big bunch of fresh coriander (cleaned & sorted)
1 small capsicum
Handful of French beans
1 small onion(use spring onion if you have)
Salt as per taste
Pepper freshly crushed, as per taste
In a large boiling pot dump tomatoes, carrot, Coriander, garlic, capsicum, french beans.
Add 1.5 ltr of water.
Now simmer gently till the vegetables are cooked and the soup has be flavored with veggies.
Skim the foam with a laddle.
Strain the soup. Add salt and pepper.
Clear soup is ready!
**Please note clear soup is very good for weightloss but over consumption is not advisable because the nutritional benefits are too less.
*** To jazz up this soup for my family requirements I do the following-
- Add some sugar to taste to cut through the tartness of tomatoes.
- Thicken it up by mixing 3-4 tbsp cornflour in 1/2 cup water and add it towards the end of cooking process.
- Saute 2 tbsp of chopped veggies in 1 tbsp butter. I used onion and carrot here. You can use any variety of veggies.
- I also add some pizza seasoning or oregano in the end. My kids love this twist.
- Add a dash of soy sauce and red chilli sauce for a spice hit.
- Add some chicken for a non veg flavored soup.
On the side serve some bread toasted with cheese. It’s so yum!!!!
Honestly this soup is one of our favourite. It’s a great way to use up your leftover veggies. It’s the best way to not waste any veggies.
