A soup for good throat, health and soul too.
Beetroot.. who eats that? Every other health related resource talk about the amazing health benefits of Beetroot. But every other person I have met simply dislikes it, owing to its earthy taste, colour, or may be just for the fact that it is healthy. So just a simple yet breakthrough recipe for you guys. Have this Beetroot & Carrot soup once a while to stock on the great nutrients of beetroot. Your body and soul may just thank you.
INGREDIENTS: (Recipe for 2 people)
- Beetroot – 1 Big beetroot, sliced
- Carrot – 1, Chopped in big chunks
- Tomato – 1, quartered
- Star Anise – 1
- Salt to taste
- Cumin Powder – 1 teaspoon
- Pepper – 6-7, crushed
- Butter – optional
- Sesame Seeds – Roasted, for garnish
Take Beetroot, Carrot, Tomato and Star Anise in a bowl with water. You can steam it or microwave it. I prefer to put it in a pressure cooker and cook for 3 whistles.
Here’s the picture after I removed from the pressure cooker.
Remove the Star Anise and Grind it fine in a mixer grinder. And transfer to a pateli. Place over the gas.
Add salt to taste, cumin powder and butter. Now butter is optional and if you are adding it, be sure to use less salt if it is a salted butter. Butter gives a nice taste for sure.
Finally serve in cups or bowls garnishing with crushed pepper and roasted sesame seeds. Drink it warm and just feel good about yourself. Yumminess need not be compromised while eating healthy.
BE YUMMY. BE HEALTHY.
