again an easy veg soup recipe that good for the winters. this mix vegetable soup recipe is the way i make tibetan thukpa minus the noodles. so when noodles are not there, i prepare this light, warm and nutritious veg soup. i have added moong sprouts in the soup and they do give a good taste and texture in the soup. though if you don’t have moong sprouts, you can just skip them. you can also add tofu in the soup.
this vegetable soup is also a good way to use leftover veggies from the kitchen. just add whatever veggies you have and you get a hearty bowl of veg soup. the flavor and taste of the mix veg soup will depend on the vegetables you add. so you can also add veggies of your choice.
serve the vegetable soup steaming hot plain or accompanied with noodles. sometimes i even steam some rice to go along with this veg soup.
