Cook Time
30 minutes
Servings

Increasing our vegetable intake, has a very alkalising effect on our bodies. It helps us combat any illness that the body is facing. Nuts are bodybuilders and enhance the repair mechanism of body.

Veggies and Nuts combined together have the power to heal and nourish from within!

Here is a warm winter soup. Do note that we have lightly steamed the veggies to ensure their enzymes and nutrients are not destroyed through cooking.

Ingredients
  • Tomatoes: 4 medium sized
  • Carrots: 2-3
  • Cashew nuts: 7-8
  • Coriander leaves: a handful
  • Celery stick: 1 (optional)
  • Rock salt & black pepper: as per taste
  • Jaggery powder: as per taste

 

Method
  • Cut the tomatoes and carrots & steam them till soft.
  • To avoid water running out, you can keep the veggies in a steel plate and put in a steamer.
  • Soak cashew nuts in warm water for 1-2 hours. If you miss soaking them due to some reason, you can use them as it is also. Soaked nuts make the soup creamier.
  • Cool down the steamed veggies & put them in a blender. Add cashew. Blend the mixture.
  • Transfer the blended mixture to a pan, add water to get the desired consistency of soup.
  • Add some jaggery powder if the tomatoes have made the soup tangy, as per your liking.
  • Give it a boil.
  • Add salt, black pepper & coriander leaves.
  • Your soup is ready to be served.

Eating guide

  • Food group: vegetables and nuts
  • Increasing our vegetable intake in raw or steamed form aids our body to remove toxins faster.
  • Including nut based soups regularly in meal times, ensure our bodies are getting a wide variety of much-needed material to cleanse, repair and grow.
  • Adding nuts to soups also makes it creamier and easily accepted by kids.
