veg clear soup recipe, clear veg soup recipe

i am sharing a very simple recipe to make a clear soup. this soup is light, healthy and nutritious. i have not used any veg stock to prepare the soup. i usually keep the the seasonings in clear soup to a minimal, so that the taste and flavors of the mixed veggies do not get subdued in the recipe. there is no strongly flavoured spice element in this clear veg soup.

just a bit of ginger, garlic, black pepper and nutmeg is added for that hint of warmth and spice. you can even add a bit of soy sauce to get an umami flavor in the clear soup.

veggies you can add in clear soup recipe

  1. you can use veggies of your choice or any spare veggie that you have in the fridge.
  2. usually i make this clear soup veg with cabbage or chinese cabbage or bok choy, carrots, beans, sweet corn and mushrooms.
  3. you can even add some tofu cubes. some celery can also be added. in this recipe, i have used veggies which were there in the kitchen.

few more soup recipes you can make with mix veggies are:

this clear soup recipe can be easily doubled. serve clear soup as a starter or just have it plain in a bowl or mug.

  2. saute till the raw aroma of both ginger and garlic goes away. saute for some seconds, but do not brown them.

  3. then add ¼ cup chopped spring onions. you can also add chopped onions instead of spring onions. saute till translucent. you can also add ½ teaspoon chopped celery in this step.
