This unusual soup has been prepared from masoor dal, which is known for being rich in protein and zinc. Tomatoes give it a lovely red tinge whereas onions and garlic impart an enticing aroma. I’ve blended this soup to give it a nice creamy texture without actually adding cream! It’s a great soup, which fills you up before the meal so that you do not binge on other high-calorie foods.
Here is a chance for vegetarians to have a go at the Penang Laksa Soup, an ever-popular Malaysian delicacy. Coconut milk and vegetable stock form the base of this tasty soup, which is flavoured with a tangy and spicy paste of tamarind, chillies, lemongrass and onions. Chunky pieces of cottage cheese and crunchy bean sprouts add more josh to this perky soup, which is characterised by the rich taste of coconut milk and the fresh aroma of lemongrass. We have toned down the spice levels to make the soup enjoyable for everybody. Pair the Laksa Soup with Malaysian Noodles and Creamed Corn Cake for a satiating oriental meal.
Let your kids have the satisfaction of starting their meal with a soup prepared with their own little hands. A small but brilliant selection of veggies is cooked together and thickened with cornflour to make a Quick Vegetable Soup, which is elegantly spiced with pepper and excitingly garnished with cheese. The crunch of spring onions and carrots and the cheesy finish are sure to bowl over your kids!

A foodie’s delight, the Corn Chowder Soup is also quick and easy to make. It is a typical American thick soup made of boiled sweet corn and sautéed onions, enhanced by the pleasant tang of celery and aromatic nutmeg. The use of milk makes this wholesome soup all the more satiating.

A dish with proud mediterranean origins, this soup is a winter warmer to be served with warm crusty bread and if you like, a slice of cheese. The addition of cream to the soup balances the acidic taste of the tomatoes.

It is not uncommon to use potatoes in the preparation of soups. Sometimes, they are used in the stock. At other times, the juice of a potato is used to thicken a soup instead of cornflour. But, in this unique soup, potato takes the centre stage. Here, potatoes are flavoured with onions and bayleaf, and cooked along with milk and fresh cream to make a terrifically creamy soup. Since potato is known to thicken foods, ensure you serve the Cream of Potato Soup immediately before it becomes too thick to consume!
A light and appetizing soup made of a wonderful combination of veggies like cauliflower, cabbage, green peas and carrot, which bring in a riot of colors and myriad textures to the soup. A base of clear vegetable sauce thickened with corn flour and flavoured mildly with soy sauce and pepper, makes the Clear Cauliflower, Green Pea and Cabbage Soup a sumptuous treat.

When you are game for a bowlful that is bursting with flavour, go for this Broccoli and Red Capsicum Soup. Capsicum, onions and garlic together make this a truly flavorsome soup, while broccoli gives it a luscious texture. Both broccoli and red capsicum are fibre-rich veggies, making this soup a good addition to a diabetic meal. As it is quite low in fat and carbs, you can even have this tasty soup every day. Try other diabetic friendly soups like Lentil and Vegetable Broth , Mixed Sprouts Soup and Mein Chow Soup .
Almonds are special because the effect they have on our palate is unusual. While their richness is intoxicating, their mildly nutty flavour is very soothing at the same time. Naturally, a soup made with this wonderful ingredient is nothing short of a special treat. While the blanching and de-skinning of almonds takes a bit of time, the actual preparation of the soup is very easy and quick, so the effort is well-balanced and the final outcome is completely worthy of it! You can peel and refrigerate the almonds earlier, but prepare the soup just before serving in order to enjoy the best texture. Since the soup is white sauced based, it tends to get gooey upon cooling. Serve with classy Canapés like Parsley and Cottage Cheese Canapes , Mushroom Canapes , Cottage Cheese and Dill Canapés and Rajgira Paratha Canapés .
The Fresh Green Pea Soup is a vibrantly-coloured soup with a unique flavour and creamy texture, which you will enjoy thoroughly! Interestingly, you will enjoy the preparation of this soup too because it is can be made easily, in a jiffy. Onions give a nice, spicy touch to this sumptuous soup, while potatoes and milk give it a lusciously creamy mouth-feel. But above all this, the juiciness and unique taste of green peas is clearly discernable in the Quick Green Peas Soup. So quick and so easy, you can enjoy a bowlful right away... with Ladi Pav Garlic Bread or Garlic Bread to bite along or serve with Pizzas and Pastas for a heatier meal.
