Recipe for  Carrot Soup
Recipe type: Soup
Serves - 3 to 4(approximately)

Ingredients:
Carrots (medium seized) - 3 (chopped roughly)
Cauliflower - 3 to 4(small individual florets)
Garlic - 2 to 3 cloves (chopped)
Onion - 1 medium (finely chopped)

Water / Veg stock / Chicken stock - 2 cups
Salt - to taste
Pepper powder - as required

Butter / Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Cream - 1 tbsp

If you felt the soup is thick either you can add milk or water to dilute.

Directions:
Heat olive oil / butter in a pan, add onion and garlic, sauté till onion gets translucent.

Next add chopped carrots, cauliflower florets, salt and water / any stock you prefer(veg / non veg). 

Close the pan with the lid and allow to cook till the veggies are cooked. 

 Allow the mixture to cool and separate the liquid and veggies separately.
Keep the liquid for later use.  Grind the veggies by using mixer  into fine paste.

Now add both drained liquid and veg mixture into the same pan.  Just heat the mixture again.


Season it with salt and pepper according to your taste.   Add cream / milk at last to enrich the taste.



Switch off the flame.   Garnish with the dash of cream / coriander leaves and serve hot!

Note:

You can also add potato instead of cauliflower to give thickness to the soup.

To make it low calorie; you may avoid using butter, milk and cream.
