how to make winter vegetable soup

  1. To make winter vegetable soup, heat 2 tsp olive oil or coconut  oil or oil in a pan. Consider using  olive oil or coconut oil instead of processed seed oils for a healthier diet. Olive oil is a strong antioxidant and good for the heart. Also it has anti-inflammatory properties. This is one of the healthiest oils you can opt for. 
  2. Add  1/4th cup chopped onions. Onions release a wonderful aroma when cooked, which makes the soup more inviting. The quercetin in Onions promotes production of HDL (good cholesterol) and lowers total cholesterol in the body. The sulphur in onions act as a blood thinner and prevents blood clotting too.
  3. Add bay leaves (tejpatta). Bay leaves release a warm, slightly peppery aroma that entices the senses and adds depth to the overall flavor profile of the soup.
  4. Sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
  5. Add 1/4 cup chopped french beans. French beans have a mild, slightly sweet flavor that pairs well with the other vegetables in the soup. French Beans are rich in folic acid.  A deficiency of folic acid can also lead to anaemia, as like iron they are equally necessary to make red blood cells.  
  6. Add 1/4th cup chopped carrot. Carrots have a sweet and earthy flavor. Carrots add a bit of body and texture to the soup. They also help to thicken the soup slightly. Carrots have the nutrient Beta Carotene which is a form of Vitamin A, helps prevent deterioration of the eye as one gets older and prevents night blindness.  
  7. Add 1/4 cup potato cubes. If diabetic then skip potatoes and use chopped celery.
  8. Add 1/4 cup cauliflower floretsCauliflower has a mild flavor and a slightly crunchy texture. Cauliflower is extremely low in carbs and therefore does not raise blood glucose levels quickly. One cup Cauliflower provides you 100% off your daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C.  
  9. Sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
  10. Add 4 cups vegetable stock or hot water. For better taste use vegetable stock or if in hurry then use stock cubes. Homemade vegetable stock has a neutral flavour and desirable consistency that make it very versatile. It adds exciting flavours and aroma to the dish.
  11. Mix well.
  12. Cook on a medium flame for 10 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  13. Add 3/4 cup shredded cabbage. Cabbage has a mild sweet flavour and adds a bit of crunch to the soup. Cabbage is low in caloriesrelieves constipation, good for diabetics.
  14. Add 1/4 cup deseeded tomato cubesTomatoes have a rich, tangy flavor that complements the sweetness of the french beans and carrots.  Tomatoes are extremely rich source of Lycopene. Tomatoes are a powerful antioxidant, super rich in Vitamin C, good for heart.  
  15. Add salt to taste. We added 3/4th tsp salt. Salt brings out natural flavours and makes foods more palatable. Too much of it can ruin the food and your health. So, use only the right amount. If you have high blood pressure, cut back on salt. 
  16. Add  freshly ground black pepper (kalimirch) to taste. Freshly ground black pepper has a more intense and complex flavour than pre-ground pepper. It adds a subtle spiciness and depth of flavour to the soup.
  17. Mix well.
  18. Cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
  19. Garnish with parsley.
  20. Experience the luxurious texture of this soul-warming winter vegetable soup, a culinary delight for the senses.
  21. Serve winter vegetable soup hot.
