Jyo's Clear Vegetable Soup


Kitchen at home is my world and Jyo does not like to help out as he says he prefers to have good food and leave the cooking to meJ . For Akku there is one thing that comes to his mind when it comes to Jyo cooking, and that is the ‘clear vegetable soup’ which is what he makes when I feel a lil down. Both Akku and I like it a lot, as it is quite simple and honest, though it can get to you if you get it every day in the week as it once happened , maybe too much of a good thing is bad…

Like every good recipes, there is a story behind this soup as well. During Jyo’s first job, his vegetarian boss took him to a fine restaurant for dinner. The boss took the ‘clear vegetarian soup’ and recommended Jyo to try it too, now this was a time when the guy felt that specials can only be of the feathered or leather-ed type J (ohh,much has changed since J)…So he agreed for the same with false enthusiasm (and very reluctant inside), and he was pleasantly surprised on the very first sip itself that he fell in love with its simple taste. Part of the reason could be that the expectation levels were so low, but there is no disputing the fact that the simple taste was honest and pure, and more often than not, simple is better.., so here is the recipe now and I am sure you will like it too J

Cabbage - 1/2 cup 
Snap Peas - 4-5
Baby Corn - 3-4 
Ginger - 1 inch
Lemon juice - 1 T
Salt - as per taste

(be creative and try any combination of vegetables)


Cut vegetables into 1 inch pieces and julienne ginger. Add the veggies and ginger to a medium sauce pan with about 3 cups of water. Bring to boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 10-15 minutes till vegetables are soft. Add lemon juice and salt and adjust taste. That's it.. serve hot immediately.
