Vegetable and Noodle/Pasta Soup
Its the rainy season and thankfully the heat has subsided. Schools have started and again we are back to worrying what new to make each day for those evening snacks. Giving your kid the same thing day-after-day will ensure they end up not having it, and it is upto you to come up with new and delicious yet healthy recipes so that their taste buds are adequately tickled.
Here is a simple soup preparation that is made with vegetables and noodles or pasta, whichever your child likes more or whichever is available that moment at home :)
What you need:
carrots, spring onions, spinach and beans, finely diced and steamed
steamed green peas, corn
noodles or pasta
black pepper powder
salt to taste
Maggi masala cubes (optional)
How to make:
In a big pan, pour some water and put in the steamed vegetables and noodles/pasta.
Bring to a boil.
Put in salt as per taste.
Put a pinch of black pepper powder.
Put in some tomato ketchup and soya sauce and stir to mix well.
In a small bowl take one tbsp corn flour and mix with water. Stir well so that no lumps are formed.
Now add this mix to the vegetables that are already cooking.
You can also add some Maggi Masala cubes if you wish.
Mix well, stir occasionally.
As soon as the vegetables and the noodles/pasta are cooked, take off the gas.
You can add cream/butter if you wish.
To turn this into a non-vegetarian soup, simply add steamed pieces of chicken.
Also, you can use Maggi noodles instead of regular noodles to give it a yummier flavour :)
