High Fibre and Low Cal Garlic Coriander Stoup

I made croutons… so some soup had to follow. Funny right? It’s like buying a pair of shoes first, and then you go hunting to match a dress with it. Perpetually chided for doing things the other way round is nothing new for me. I’m like that.

Stew, a thicker fuller wholesome sister of a more lighter runny soup. I made one which was both. A STOUP. This had the semi thickness and body of a stew but the soul was more soupy. I tend to go mental with my words… forgive me. Well.. you need to try this aromatic flavorsome soup to coin whatever name you please.

The ironic moment: This stoup is filled with minced tiny crunchy veggies…. SO?
So, we didn’t need the extra bite from the bread croutons. 🙂 The stoup had enough! And yes, I am also perpetually reprimanded for things not turning out the way they should have.
But, I’ll tell you what?! It usually works for me. Infact better than planned. Again, emphasizing the fact, I am blessed.

Combining two awesome cooking essentials like garlic and coriander is like making magic. Abundant flavors hit your taste buds. We really did not need anything more with this soup, no croutons, no garlic bread, no crostinis. Perhaps a light healthy appetizer will seal the dinner menu. My bet is baked Paneer Chilly would taste awesome with this heavenly Stoup.

This fibre rich and calorie poor soup has been adapted from here.

The Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely minced vegetables, I used carrot, beans, broccoli, peas, mushroom and colored peppers
  • 2-3 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 2 cups low-fat milk (99.7% fat-free)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper powder to taste
  • 2 tbsp quick cooking rolled oats

Garnishing – 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves and Scallions

Method

Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the onions and garlic and sauté till the onions are translucent.Add the vegetables and sauté for a few minutes. Add the milk, salt and pepper and mix well. Keep stirring I would say, as the milk tends to slightly curdle. Bring to boil and simmer till the vegetables are tender.
Add the oats, mix well and simmer for another 5 minutes.

Serve hot garnished with coriander and scallion leaves.

Relax, take a soup break

It’s raining so hard here in Mumbai, that its depressing. Some simple wholesome food will help cheering those dull dreary spirits.
Signing off on that note, Eat healthy, Be happy.
