Beetroot-Carrot Soup


Cooking for one person isn’t always fun! But there are times when it can be interesting. I make stuff that I want to try out. It is nice to make something without thinking about whether the other person will like it or not. Less pressure!


I made this soup one night when I wasn’t expecting S home for dinner. My carpool mate suggested adding bottle gourd to the vegetable mixture. I was a little skeptical, but as it turned out, it was a very good suggestion. This recipe makes enough soup for one person.


1 Beetroot, peeled and diced
1 Carrot, peeled and diced
½ cup Bottle Gourd, peeled and diced
1 Onion, diced
Salt and Pepper to taste


Pressure cook the vegetables with a cup of water. Blend this mixture in a liquidizer and bring it to boil. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

It sounds warm and comforting... I know when you say it is boring to cook for one. I don't even bother most of the time.

It is healthy too! I too hate cooking for only myself - becomes a bitof a bore. Soups or porridge is what I make!

I often add pumpkin or bottle gourd to soups - they add colour or texture to the soup. This one looks really nourishing!
