Potato & Broccoli Soup


This soup has been a big hit over winter season. I made this at least 3-4 times during this past winter. The soup is quite filling and you can eat it with bread/toast for lunch or dinner.

Soup ingredients:

3 small potatoes, diced
1 small onion, diced
diced broccoli same amount as diced potatoes

4-6 tbsp oil
salt to taste
1½ tsp red pepper
1½ tsp black pepper
1½ to 2 oz blue cheese

Vegetable broth ingredients:

3-4 leaves cabbage
1 small potato
1 small or ½ big onion (same as potato)
1 piece of dudhi/lauki (same as potato)
4 cups of water

Method:

Boil all the vegetable broth ingredients in pressure cooker for 5-6 whistles. Once done, let it cool bit and blend it well in blender and set aside.

Put oil in large pan on medium-high heat.
Add potatoes and onions and sauté for 5 minutes stirring non-stop.
Add broccoli and sauté for another 3 minutes stirring non-stop.

Add in vegetable broth and cheese and stir well. Bring it to boil. Then turn the heat to low and let the soup simmer for 25 minutes.

Afterwards, let is cool just a bit and run all of it through blender once again. Put the blended soup on stove to simmer again and add both peppers and salt to taste. Serve hot!

Note: I'm trying to find the source of the original recipe but am not able to find it. Will share it as soon as I'm able.
