After weeks of red soups with carrots, beets, onions and tomatoes finally a friend offered some respite - a white vegetable soup. The recipe is typically 'me'.. no fancy ingredients, no fancy cooking.
Maggie masala cubes 4-5 (which I was surprised to find are stocked even by our neighbourhood general merchant)
Chopped vegetables - Cauliflower, beans, peas, carrots, corn. Recently I added baby corn too.
Oats 2 tbsps
Take water in a pan.
Let it come to boil.
Add 3-4 Maggie masala cubes. The cubes are salted so taste the soup and check if you need more.
Put in the vegetables.
Let them cook. You can let them remain crunchy or cook them soft depending on how you like them.
Grind two tablespoons of oats in a mixer with a little water. Add the oats to the soup.
Keep stirring as the mixture comes to a boil.
Simmer for a few minutes and serve.
You can add a dash of vinegar too.
Incidentally my first ever blunder at work was getting the spelling of 'recipe' wrong. It would have gone unnoticed except that it was in the masthead. Gosh! Never will I forget this spelling.
