Welcome to another week of  Srivalli's Blogging Marathon - Edition 9. This week let us have an assortment of healthy and hearty soups as well as some interesting ways to consume salads!

I have just come to realize that my family has fallen in love with TVP. So I am sneaking this protein wherever and whenever possible. Yet another attempt is this hearty and filling soup! Some might want to call it a stew but for me they mean the same :) Inspiration for this soup/stew is from here.

Soy Chunks - Vegetable Soup

Also take a peek at my fellow marathoners here.

Ingredients - 

Soy Chunks (TVP) 1 cup
Corn Flour / All Purpose Flour 1 Tbsp
Dried Oregano 1/2 tsp
Dried Basil 1/2 tsp
Garlic Salt 1/2 tsp
Pepper 1/2 tsp

Onions finely chopped 1/2 cup
Tomatoes chopped 1/2 cup
Carrots chopped 1 cup
Capsicum (Green Bell Pepper) chopped 1/2 cup
Cabbage thinly sliced 1/2 cup
Celery finely chopped 1/2 cup
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Garlic clove 1
Salt as needed
Hot Sauce (I used Sriracha ) 1/2 tsp (or as per taste)
Oil 1 Tbsp (Divided use)

Soy Chunks - Vegetable Soup

Method Of preparation - 

Soak the Soy chunks in hot water for about 15-20 min.

Squeeze out the water and toss them in a mixture of corn flour, oregano, basil, garlic salt and pepper.

In a big pot, add 1 teaspoon of oil and saute the above soy chunks until they are evenly browned and set aside.

In the same big pot, add the remaining oil and saute the chopped onions. Saute the chopped garlic as well. 

Add tomatoes, capsicum, cabbage, carrots, celery and any other vegetables of your choice.

Add about 2-3 cups of water (or more if required) and let the vegetables cook.

Add turmeric, hot sauce and salt as needed.

Transfer the soy chunks into the simmering soup and let the flavors blend in for about 10-15 min and garnish with coriander leaves.

Remove from fire and enjoy the hot and healthy soup!
