Sprout Soup Recipe
Sprout 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, So sharing this one which I make it often for the family for a weekend breakfast. I have used moth bean known 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 your body condition. During winter fresh ginger or dry ginger powder and black pepper powder are a good choice. Cumin and lemon are apt for any season including the summers.
I had made this while a family member of mine was recovering from a flu, so 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.

Hi mam… Can I give this sprouted soup for my 8 months old??
If your baby completed 8 months then yes try with a small quantity. Please ensure you have introduced each of the ingredients separately before.
Forgot to tell u. Today i made sambar rice. It turned out delicious husband n friends liked a lot n very little left to me. Tomorrow trying akki roti every weekend i use to prepare atleast 1 recipe from ur blog.
Thanks for trying. Glad to know you all liked the sambar rice.
Hi swasthi how r u ? Want to try this healthy soup as breakfast to my 2 years baby. I dont have steamer or steam basket. Is da basket available in singapore? Which u used in cooker. Can i give dis once in a week ? Is 1 whistle enough to cook ? Sorry for so many questions if i give sprouts directly, she can digest well ?
I am good. Thanks for asking. Please don’t feel sorry. Yes you can give this for 4 to 5 days in a week. Don’t need to buy a basket. Just add the sprouts to a slightly large bowl. Place it in the cooker on top of the bottom plate or use idli steamer. steam for 10 to 12 minutes without weight. You can also pressure cook for 1 whistle but steaming preserves nutrients. The basket i am using had come with a electric rice cooker to steam veggies. You can check in metro or OG, orchard road. I remember seeing something similar there. You can give green gram sprouts with out cooking. Try giving in the mornings easy to digest. Try with 2 tbsps first. You can read this post to make sprouts if you prefer to eat them raw.I have replied your other comments too.
Hope these help.
Thank u very much swasthi for ur very helpful information. I need to pour water in cooker then place da bowl filled with spròuts r8? How many whistles ? I will try with steamed veg n sprouts 1st. She is not chewing food. Always need to smash very well dats y thought to give raw sprouts to habituate chewing without making paste.
Yes but no whistle. Just steam it without the weight – for 10 to 12 mins. You will have to keep telling to chew, almost for every bite. You can also try sprouts. You can try with soft foods like paneer. You can just saute it in few drops of oil for 2 mins and give.
