Yes, you read it right...that's what the title says - Drink up your veggies and get all the nutrients. Even fussy eaters will relish a bowl-full of warm and creamy vegetable soup. Get back at those hunger pangs with this satisfying soup. Here is the recipe...

Creamy vegetable soup ( recipe):

1/2 potato
1 large tomato
1/2 onion
1 pod garlic
5-6 pepper corns
1/2 cup peas
1 cup spinach
1 cup assorted mixed vegetables (squash, bottle gourd, french beans, carrot, beet, turnip) any vegetable .....you get the idea?
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp cream (optional)

1. Pressure cook all the vegetables in sufficient water until tender.
2. Let the cooked vegetables cool for a few minutes.
3. Puree the entire mixture with the cream.
4. Sieve the puree, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to serve.

You could use vegetable or chicken stock instead of water.

Enjoy the warm soup when it is chilly outside....
