Carrot Broccoli Soup

Soup is a comfort food! Nonetheless, soup can also make a meal when served with accompaniments such as bread, salad, soup sticks or crackers. Soup is a healthy substitute for the regular meal, when you don't feel like cooking an elaborate meal. Here is a recipe for a thick, healthy soup!


Broccoli - large, 1 no  

Carrots - 2 no

Garlic - 2 cloves

Bay leaf - 1 no

Onion - 2 no, cubed

Butter or ghee - 1 tablespoon*

Cashew nuts - 10 no

Salt - to taste

Pepper - ground, ½-1 teaspoon (adjust to taste)

* You can substitute butter/ghee with vegetable oil.


  • Separate broccoli florets and wash them in running water. Drain and keep aside. Peel carrots and cut into cubes.
  • Heat ghee or butter in a kadai. Add bay leaf and sauté for a minute. Add in garlic cloves and onion cubes. Sauté till onion becomes transparent. Now add broccoli, carrot, cashew nuts and half a cup of water. 
  • Cover and cook on low flame till the vegetables are done. Switch off the stove and allow the contents to cool.
  • Remove the bay leaf, and blend the remaining ingredients into a smooth puree using the mixer-grinder.
  • Transfer the puree to the kadai. Add 3 cups of water, salt and pepper. Mix well. Bring it to boil and then simmer for 2-3 minutes. Your soup is ready! Serve hot with bread or any other accompaniment of your choice.
