Dill Soup

My experiments with soups continues. My farmer has been giving me dill of late. I have never used this herb before. I tried using it to make a green smoothie, but I found the taste not to my liking. I therefore decided that it would be better to cook the dill rather than have it…

Quick Vegetable Soup

Yet another soup. This one is so simple that even a child can put it together. From the prolific and iconic Tarla Dalal, bless her. If you are in the mood for something hot (temperature, not chili) and not in a mood to spend a large amount of time in the kitchen, then this soup…

Green Bell Pepper Soup

Bell peppers are called capsicum in India. I shall therefore keep this post to Indian terminology. In my eagerness to try new recipes, I began experimenting with several soups. Most of them turned out really well. More because Hari is a very talented chef rather than any contribution of mine. This is one such soup…

Cabbage Soup

Yet another soup. This time, what several people consider to be superfood, cabbage. I hesitate to use cabbage in my salads, though I do on rare occasions. Mainly because it could contain worms that will not be removed through rinsing the cabbage. I therefore prefer cooked cabbage dishes. I was therefore delighted to discover this…

Broccoli Soup

I must credit this recipe to Sharan India. The Sharan website has several wonderful recipes, all WFPBNO. I credit my vegan journey completely to Sharan and Dr. Nandita Shah. I often try out the recipes from the Sharan website – all of them are really wonderful recipes. This broccoli soup pampers you so much that…

Spinach And Chickpea Soup

My love affair with soups continues. And I have to thank the iconic Tarla Dalal for this recipe. It was already vegan. All I had to do was omit the oil. But I wasn’t sure how this soup would turn out. I am not a great fan of spinach since I dislike the raw taste…

Carrot And Cauliflower Soup

I go through phases when I begin to experiment with a specific kind of food. For the past month, it has been soups. That’s mainly because the weather has turned cold (North India has a fairly pronounced winter). I therefore preferred hot or warm soups over cold salads. I appreciate that soups are nowhere close…

Asparagus Soup

Asparagus in not native to India. I find it in the market often, but priced really high. But I have come to like the taste of asparagus. I therefore buy it every once in a while. It normally goes into a salad with baby carrots. But this time, I was having a rollicking good time…

Curd Shorba (Yogurt Based Soup)

Shorbas are Indian soups. The most well-known shorba is tomato. But there are several other intersting ones. This one, with a yogurt base, is one of them. As the weather in Northern India turns colder, I crave a hot soup with my lunch everyday. So, I am experimenting with several types of soups. This one,…

Vegetable Broth

The weather is cold in Delhi. Medical wisdom says that we should include a lot of raw vegetables into our diet. The same school of medical wisdom also says that we should listen to our body when we consume food. In this cold weather, my body craves hot soups and wants to stay away from…
