Spinach Tomato Soup (Vegetarian)


Soups (Yogurt Rasam, Hot Masala Lentil Soup,Corn Soup & Turmeric Tomato Soup & Vegetable Soup)  are the most basic, simplest and easiest to cook. Basically, anyone can make a soup. So easy, nothing brain cracking, either you saute some garlic, ginger or shallots, and then pour water and then add the rest of the ingredients. Done. Isn't that just so straightforward? Of course though admittedly, there are the complicated soups as well. Not for me. My life is already complicated, I don't think I should load up more complications. Soups for me are also about which ingredients I can pull out from the fridge. Sometimes, with busyness, I am really blinded to ingredients hidden at the far end which must be used up instead of rotting.

Even then, I am not really particular whether I make a vegetarian or non-vegetarian soup. Anything goes literally especially when my day has tired and worn me down (Dhal Bitter Gourd Curry, Aloo Gobi, Vegetable Green Curry, Vegetarian Mutton Varuval, Yam Basket Vegetarian, Mint Mushroom Burger & Shanghai Noodles Vegetarian). For this Spinach Tomato Soup, spinach (Stir Fried Cumin Spinach Tofu) did a whole lot of justice for healthiness (Fish Ball Spinach SoupSpinach Sambar/Dhal Curry) in a mildly tangy soup. Can we now move on to making it please? Thank you. Have a nice day everyone.

Ingredients
1 bunch (about 400g) spinach - remove roots, wash thoroughly and sliced thinly
1 (about 200g) tomato - sliced thinly
5 garlic - chopped
1 onion - chopped
2 sprigs spring onion- sliced thinly
1/2 liter stock (any type of stock, I used vegetable stock)
2 tbsp oil
Salt and pepper for taste

Method
When oil is heated, saute garlic and onion. 
Add tomato and stir for a minute or two. 
Pour in the stock and simmer to heat through. 
Season with salt and pepper.
Add spinach, stir and off the heat.
Garnish with spring onion.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!

  11. What a healthy bowl of soup you came up with, Nava. I chuckled when I read your wish about having more than 24 hours a day because I used to think that but I got tired. Now, I just go day by day and if I can't finish a task in one day. . . oh well, there will be tomorrow. Have a good weekend, Nava!
