    1. Vegetable soup

    Garden-Vegetable-Soup

      Don’t want to put too much time into cooking but still want a nutritious breakfast which includes all the vegetables? Making soup is the best idea in these times. Boil a cup of vegetables of your choice in salted water. My favorites are carrots, zucchini, split peas, broccoli and cauliflowers. Keep the boiled veggies aside. Blanch three to four tomatoes and make their puree. You can boil the veggies and puree the tomatoes and keep them in air tight containers in refrigerator. It will save your time in the morning when you are in a rush to prepare breakfast. Take a saute pan. On low flame, heat a tablespoon of butter, add a teaspoon of chopped garlic and ginger and two tablespoons of chopped green onions in it. Saute them for a minute. Add the tomato puree and the boiled veggies. Add a cup or two of water. Add a few chopped coriander leaves, roasted almonds, salt and pepper to taste. Cook for five minutes on high flame. And done! You can have it with grilled cheese sandwich for a healthy breakfast.

      2. Blanched Cabbage Meal

        Roughly cut some cabbage leaves. Blanch them in boiling salty water. Drain them and keep aside. Take a saute pan. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil. Add a small teaspoon of powdered cloves and ginger powder. Add a teaspoon of chopped garlic. Saute the mixture for a while. After the garlic-y raw smell goes away, add the cabbage leaves to the pan, some boiled peas(optional), a little bit of pepper, and a pinch of turmeric powder(optional) and mix well. Done. You can have it with hot cooked long grain rice or pasta for a fulfilling lunch.

        3. Baked eggplants

          Don’t care much about eggplants? Try this recipe and you will fall in love with them. Bake 2 cups of chopped eggplants till they are soft. Remove their skin and keep them aside. Take a saute pan. Heat olive oil, add a teaspoon of chopped garlic and one chopped green chilly. Cook for two minutes. Add a cup of chopped tomatoes. Cook till the liquid reduces. Add the baked eggplants, dried oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and serve it hot. It’s an awesome mid meal snack. Yummy!
