Bangalore weather has been cold for the last few days. Saw some heavy downpour due to cyclone.Our theme-“Soup” for Foodie Monday was apt for this weather.
I got some fresh Ridge Gourd and Spinach from my farm(Free of pesticides). I made this yummy Soup to beat the cold.What more could i ask for?
My family just loved it.Better than the store bought soups. Less sodium and no fats. Absolutely healthy and something different from the regular soups.It is a one pot meal and totally filling.Light on Tummy and hips too.
Recipe for soup(One Serving)
1/4 Ridge gourd skin peeled
1 medium tomato
1/4 cup spinach
3 garlic pods.
Boil the veggies in 3/4 glass of water for about 8 to 10 mins.
Once done blend it to fine paste.Add the water too to blend .
Add salt and pepper.Garnish with a mix of flaxseed,bajra,chia seeds and green gram powder and lotus seed.
Heat a few drops of oil in a pan.Toss the asparagus and lotus seeds with some pepper powder and salt.
Serve this with the soup.
