Brocoli Soup


I have had this soup in my draft for long, but never got to post it.
I have told you all before soup is something which we have always for lunch.
Befor the meal we have a cup of soup. In a way when my daughter was younger this was a real good way for making her have vegetables.
Actually it is a real easy soup to make.
I don't even think there is a recipe for this, but still here it goes.



I have no idea how much brocoli i use. I buy one and chopp all of it and use it.
2 leeks cut fine.
2 litre of vegetable broth.
200 ml Cream.
Pepper and salt for taste.
3 absp of oil.

Heat the oil in the pan and add the vegetables, saute them for a while , add the vegetable broth ,salt and pepper. Cook it for 15 minutes or till the vegetables are cooked.
I always use my pressure cooker for making soups.
Mix it with a blender add the cream and serve hot.

Easy to make but creamy and delicious.

Few of the SOUPS I have made.......

Coming to answering your question about the mung dal:

These mung dal/bean has a green skin,which can be available either as split or whole in any Indian store.these are otherways considered as green gram.
For pics just google it up as "SPLIT GREEN GRAM" and go to images option where you would find both whole as well as splitted one.
