Broccoli Stem Soup



1. Broccoli stem: While cooking broccoli normally we discard the stem part. Since it contains many essential nutrients, here i have used this as the main ingredient of this recipe.
2. Red chili seeds: While using red chili most of us discard it's seed. Here i have used this for taste.
3. Lemon peel: It gives cool lemon flavor to the recipe.

Ingredients:
  • Chopped Broccoli stem - 1 cup
  • Chopped potato - 2 Table spoon
  • Chopped carrot - 1 Table spoon
  • Dried red chili seed powder - 1 Tea spoon
  • Lemon zest (peel) - 1 Tea spoon
  • Skimmed milk - 2 Table spoon
  • Water - 50 ml
  • Oil - 1 Table spoon 
  • Salt
Method:
  • In a sauce pan, heat oil, add chopped broccoli stem, potato, carrot and pinch of salt.
  • Saute till vegetables are tender. Stir frequently.
  • Allow them to cool.
  • Puree sauteed vegetables with dried red chili seed powder.
  • Heat another sauce pan, add pureed vegetables, skimmed milk, lemon zest, water and remaining salt. Bring it to boil, simmer for few seconds and turn off heat.
  • Serve warm.
