Spicy Vegetable Soup Recipe

Recipe Ingredients


1 each 3 cinnamon stick
6 each cloves
4 each black cardamom pods
1 tsp black peppercorns
2 each garlic cloves, chopped
1 each 2 piece ginger, grated
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 cup potatoes, cubed
1 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup green bell pepper
6 cup stock


1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds, whole
1 each dried red chile, chopped
1 salt
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped

Recipe Preparation

Using a mortar & pestle, crush the cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom
pods & peppercorns. Set aside. In a soup pot, combine all the soup
ingredients with the crushed spices. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat
& simmer, covered, until the vegetables are very tender, about 25 to
35 minutes. Remove from the heat & cool for 10 minutes.

In batches if necessary, puree the stock & vegetables in a blender or
food processor. Return to a clean pot & reheat gently.

For the seasoning, warm the olive oil in a small skillet over medium
heat. When hot, put in the mustard seeds. After a few seconds, they
should pop. Add the cumin seeds & dried red chile & remove from the
heat. Add this mixture to the soup pot. Stir in the cilantro & salt.
Check the seasoning & serve hot.

NOTE: If you cannot find cilantro, use parsley. Use whatever
vegetables you like.

A couple of tablespoons of nuts cooked with the vegetables adds some
creaminess to the soup.

Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Elevated consumption of animal-based products could lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the probability of heart conditions.
Remember, one point that is frequently overlooked, it is damned hard (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes carrots, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green healthy plants contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene thought to help in helping stop cancer, spefically cancer of the esophagus. A good number are low in calories, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
