Soups are healthy. I make different types of Soups. I learnt this yummy and healthy Chinese soup from my elderly neighbour. Well I have made the vegetarian version.
It is more like a clear soup. I got these long bean leaves from aunty. She wanted me to try this soup.No cream has been used. It is very simple and quick recipe.
I am glad to have been introduced to this yummy comforting soup.
I have tweaked in a little by adding multi grain powder.
Recipe for Healthy Chinese Soup:
1 Cup= 250 ML
Vegetable stock 3 Cups (I had boiled some veggies for sambhar and had kept aside the excess water for soup)
10 Long bean Leaves with midrib removed
1 big carrot diced
1 onion sliced
4 Garlic Pods minced
2 Tsp of finely chopped ginger
1 Tbsp Multi Grain Powder( a mix of Green gram powder, Quinoa, Flaxseeds and Chia seeds)
Salt to Taste
1 Tsp Coarsely crushed Pepper
Wash the leaves , remove the midrib, tear the leaves and keep it aside.
In a heavy bottomed vessel add all the ingredients except Multi grain powder and salt.
Keep it on slow flame. Let it simmer till the quantity of stock reduced to 3/4th.
Add the multigrain powder and let is simmer for 5 mins. Switch off the stove. Serve hot!!
PS: You can add any veggies or meat of your choice.
Adding of Multigrain powder is my idea.
