Winter warmer– Carrot and Broccoli Soup

Life is getting tougher and tougher for me. Especially with a toddler hanging on to my shoulder all the time, I am left with almost no time for blogging. Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining at all, I just love spending time with my toddler and the little things he does. Few days ago he produced his first piece of artwork which I am immensely proud of. It always the little things that makes our lives so colourful.


Anyway, I am always looking for ideas to feed my little one, which I can make it as quick as possible at the same time full of flavour, taste and got to be healthy. One such dish is my carrot and broccoli soup. You don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this dish and its ready under 30 minutes and not all that time spent in kitchen making the dish. The other bonus of this dish is grown-ups can have it too. This is how I made the soup.



2 carrots (pealed and roughly cut into chunks)

4 florets of broccoli

1 tsp of cumin powder

1 tsp coriander powder

1tbsp oil

salt to taste

jug full of boiling water


Fry the carrots and broccoli in the oil with the spices for five minutes or so then add enough boiling water to cover the veg and boil it for 15-20 minutes. Add salt to taste and a bit of freshly crushed black pepper. Once the veg are almost done blend it . Serve warm with a knob of butter on top and bread. Enjoy!
