Coriander Stalks & Spinach Stalks Soup

          This is a very light and a refreshing soup with the leftover stalks as they contain a lot of nutrients and then keeps your wastage to a minimum. It gives out a very distinctive flavour, so try adding this versatile soup to your daily menu. It is especially good for the diet given to the elderly people.For some texture and consistency, I added oats and masoor dal for some proteins and fibre.

  • 1/2 cup coriander stalk, chopped
  • 1/2 cup spinach stalk (only the tender ones), chopped
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 & 1/2 cups vegetable / chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp. masoor dal, soaked for 15 minutes
  • 1 tbsp. oats
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp. lime juice

          Heat oil and saute the bay leaf . Then add the onions and garlic and fry till light brown. Then add 2 cups stock, both the coriander & spinach stalks, masoor dal, oats, salt and pepper and pressure cook for 3-4 whistles.

          When cool, discard the bay leaf. Blend into a puree and heat through. Serve with a dash of lime juice.
