Warm soups are soul comfort food during the cold winters. Soups are of two types Clear Soup and Thick Soup.There are different varieties of soups.On some lazy weekends I love to have warm soups that is a complete yummy and nourishing meal in itself.Today i will be sharing a healthy and yummy recipe which be prepared in just 20 to 25 minutes.This is one of the healthy soups.
My contribution to our 65th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop Theme #Soups is this yummy Spinach and Macaroni Soup.This is dairy free, yet so creamy and yummy.
300 Gms Fresh Spinach (washed and roughly chopped -i have used the stems too)
1 Medium Size Potato peeled and finely chopped
1 Onion medium sized chopped
1 Garlic clove crushed
1 Tsp Black Pepper Corns
1 Tsp Olive Oil
Some Red Chilli flakes for garnish
Salt to taste
1/2 Cup Macaroni cooked as per the instructions on the packet
I have used Store bought Sprouted extra fine Grain bread. Remove the sides of the bread slice. Cut it into pcs and roast it on a pan with just one tsp oil. I have not used oil to deep fry .It is completely your choice if you want to fry.
Take a heavy bottom pan , warm the olive oil on medium flame.Add pepper corns and slightly roast . Crush the garlic . Add the crushed garlic ,chopped onion and cook until the onions turn golden brown.
Once done add the roughly chopped Spinach and finely chopped potatoes.Keep stirring until the veggies are lightly roasted.Add about 180 ml water.Do not add more water as the soup will not be creamy then.Let it cook for about 20 mins. You can add more water if you feel the potatoes are uncooked.The Potatoes were cooked and i have not added extra water.
Allow it to cool. Blend it to a thick creamy paste in a blender. You can water if you feel the soup is thick.You may adjust the consistency as per your taste.
Add the boiled Macaroni to this nice creamy Soup. Sprinkle some salt as per taste. Garnish with Chilli flakes and croutons and serve warm.
