sprouts soup recipe – Healthy, tasty, protein based soup made with fresh steamed sprouts and veggies. Suitable to all during all seasons including babies from 9 months onwards. This soup is good to have even for breakfast as it is nutrient dense and makes a wonderful food to start your day.
I had a few requests to share some soup recipes, hence sharing this one which I make it often for the family for a weekend breakfast or evening snack. I have used moth bean called as matki, it can be replaced with sprouted green gram, chana or even mixed sprouts can be used.
Spices or other ingredients for flavoring can be used to suit the season or one’s body condition. During winter fresh ginger or dry ginger powder, pepper powder make a good choice, while cumin and lemon are apt for the summers.
I had made this while a family member of mine was recovering from a flu, hence I used cumin and very little pepper powder. You can invest your ideas and thoughts to make it suitable for your body condition including the choice of veggies. Any starchy veggies like potatoes or sweet potatoes may not be gentle on the stomach.
