A bowlful of good health for dinner!

I woke up this morning with a shocking realisation of how unhealthy our diet is!! I thought it high time to take control of our lives and be more conscious of what we eat...maybe it was the guilt of the laddus & vada pav we devoured over the weekend, anyways it has opened our eyes to the painful reality of expanding waistlines and the miserable couch potato attitude. So, M & I are going to try to eat our way to a better 'us', a healthier and fitter 'us'. Wish us luck!
We start by having a wholesome veggies soup. Very easy 'n' quick.

  • 1 large bowl of mixed veggies - I used carrots, broccoli, peas, sweet corn and mushrooms. Dice the veggies to bite sized chunks. You could chop them up smaller if you wish. M likes the mushrooms chunky, so I don't chop them finely.
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tspn cornflour
  • salt 'n' pepper
  • vinegar and soy sauce for flavour
  1. Bring water to a rapid boil in a saucepan.
  2. Add the veggies and boil further till they're cooked.
  3. In a small bowl, make a runny mixture of cornflour and water and add this to the boiling broth.
  4. Season with salt & pepper.
  5. You could use soy sauce and vinegar for added flavour.
  6. Serve with toasted garlic bread.

Great on a winter night!
