I’m always in search of something light and velvety, something that makes me feel good and free as a butterfly, something enjoying to cook and to eat, something fun, but that can also clean my coscience.
Yesterday I was lost in this quest, when Aunt Teresa suggested me this soup, made with leftover vegetables in your fridge. A touch of India, and here you have a velvety soup that keeps all the promises!
- potato, 1 medium
- zucchini, 2 medium
- peas, 100 gr
- carrot, 1 medium
- white onion, 1/2
- extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon
- vegetable masala, 1 teaspoon (indian spices made from ccoriander, turmeric, cumin, mustard seeds, aniseed, fennel seeds, chilli, bay, curry leaves)
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a non stick pan and add the onion, thinly sliced.
Peel and cut into small chunks carrot, potatoes, zucchini and add them in the pan. Add the peas too. Add salt and spices. Cover with water and let simmer for about 20 minutes.
Remove from the heat and blend all the vegetales, adding a bit of water if you like it less firm.
Serve warm with a dollop of greek yoghut and some chive.
Good, really good, light, spicy. I had this soup for dinner and I wasn’t hungry till this morning (as it should be, but it doesn’t happen each and every time, isn’t it?!)
