Home Style Vegetable Soup


Vegetable soup is one of the simplest soup and the best way to use the leftover vegetables.  Addition of lentils mix gives thickness and richness to the soup.  I like to serve this vegetable soup with whole wheat bread or garlic bread.


Ingredients :

  1. Vegetables (Carrot, beans, corn,peas, cabbage)chopped - 1 cup
  2. Lentil mix (Toor dal, channa dal, moong dal, raw rice, idly rice) - 2 tbsp
  3. Vegetable stock / Water - 2 cups
  4. Oil / Butter - 1 tsp
  5. Bay leaf - 1 no
  6. Black pepper powder - 1 tsp
  7. Onion, chopped - 1 small sized
  8. Tomato , chopped - 1 small sized
  9. Salt to taste
  10. Coriander leaves

Method :

1.   Pressure cook the lentil mix and smash them to smooth paste.

2.  In a heavy bottomed pan, add butter and bay leaf.  Add finely chopped onion and saute.

3.  Add finely chopped vegetables, tomato and salt to taste.  Saute.



4.  Add smashed lentil paste and vegetable stock.  Cover and cook until done.

5.  Finally, remove the bay leaf and garnish it with coriander leaves and black pepper powder.


Serve warm with bread.
