Potato Carrot Vegetable Soup


I'm not sure if its a trend now to give up eating meat or perhaps people are overly health conscious. Good for them while I continue to eat anything I like but all moderately. If I give up eating meat, I think I will die faster without enough nutrients as it is I am so small. But I do admit that from time to time a a flavourful and colourful vegetable soup is also nutritious. This soup is no ordinary soup. Its made with a bundle of spices, butter, vegetable stock, potato, carrot and scented with parsley.  Have it just like that to lightly pack the stomach. For me, please bring a plate of rice.

Ingredients
For the spice bundle
1/2 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp black pepper seeds
1 stick cinnamon
1 star anise
2 cloves
1 cardamom
**Wrap and bundle these spices in a small piece of muslin cloth
Others
2 potatoes - cubed into medium size pieces
1 carrot - cubed into medium size pieces
4 shallots - chopped
1 1/2 tbsp salted butter
2 sprigs garden or Chinese parsley
1/2 litre vegetable stock
Pepper and salt for taste

Method
When butter is heated, sauté shallots.
Pour in stock,add bundles spice and vegetables.
Simmer till veggies are soft.
Season with pepper and salt.
Garnish with parsley before serving.
