Veg Clear Soup

I place such a big emphasis on simple comfort food. Food that you cook on weekdays should be fuss-free. This keeps you stress-free and allows you to do other things.

Based on this philosophy, I have a few go-to dishes which I can make when I literally don’t have much time on my hands and don’t want to spend more than 15 minutes in the kitchen. There are a few recipes which fall under this category like Daal Khichdi, Oats Khichdi, Veg Tofu soup, Tomato soup, and Veg Clear Soup.

Sharing this simple recipe of the veg clear soup. I added whatever I could find in my refrigerator. I added a celery stick, few sprigs of spring onion, carrots, cabbage, and broccoli. Alternatively, you could also add beans, mushrooms capsicum, corn and so on.
