Spring Onion Soup

Thursday, April 07, 2011

While growing up, I didn't know anything beyond Tomato Soup :) That is because, Indian cuisine isn't very large on soups. There isn't anything beyond a Dal Shorba or a Tamatar Shorba at most Indian restaurants.
Ofcourse, now with growing diversity, frequent travels & constant media exposure, we are better aware of different cusines across the world.

I have a thing for soups. Not the rich creamy variety, but simple homemade ones packed with loads of nutrition & flavour.

Spring Onion Soup

I had a bunch of Spring Onions, & not wanting to make what I usually do with these, I found  this recipe on Martha Stewart's website. This one's fairly simple to make & takes just about 15 mins.

I love adding milk to my soups as it gives a nice creamy texture. If you don't want to add milk, add more stock or cream if you would like to.

You Will Need:
  • A bunch of Spring Onions - Approximately 2 cups when chopped
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • A little more than 1  cup of Vegetable Stock/Water
  • Minced Garlic - 1 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tsp Butter
  • Salt as per taste

How To:
  • Heat butter in a sauce pan, Add garlic & chopped spring onions. Saute for about 3 mins or until the spring onions are cooked. Don't allow spring onions to change color. Turn off the stove, Set aside & allow it to cool
  • Gring spring onions into a smooth paste adding little water. Strain & transfer to a cooking pot.
  • Bring the pot to a boil, Add milk & vegetable stock & allow it to heat gently. Season with salt & freshly cracked pepper.

Serve HOT with a crusty bread of your choice. Add a dash of cream, if you want some .. Enjoi !!!
