Spinach Soup with Mixed Veggies

So now as I am on a health roll, soups and salads make a very important part of my diet. I keep experimenting with different favours of soups and keep trying mixing and matching the ingredients.

Here is a recipe I tried over the weekend and turned out really good, simple, flavourful and full of goodness.

Spinach Soup with Mixed Vegetables

Ingredients that you will need:

  • Spinach- 250 gms
  • Garlic Cloves- 3-4
  • Olive Oil- 2 Table Spoons
  • Chopped Mix Veggetables- 150 gms( cabbage, carrots, beans, capsicum, corn, peas, cauliflower florets, mushrooms)
  • Vegetable Stalk- 1 litre
  • Corn Starch- 1 Table Spoon
  • Mixed Herbs- 1 Tea Spoon
  • Paprika- 1/2 Tea Spoon
  • Salt to Taste
  • Grated Cheese to Garnish

These ingredients are good enough for 2 large serves

Method

  • Heat 1 table spoon olive oil in a pan and add chopped garlic to it.
  • Saute the garlic for about 2 minutes.
  • Roughly chop the spinach, wash it and then add to the pan.
  • Saute, garlic and spinach, for about 8 minutes, the spinach would be more or less cooked by now. Turn off the gas, and empty the spinach in a bowl and let it cool down.
  • Put the gas again on heat and add 1 table spoon olive oil, take all chopped vegetables and cook them for about 10 minutes on low heat. Cover the pan, and cook for another five minutes.
  • Once the spinach cools down a bit, blend it to a smooth paste with the help of a blender/mixer.
  • Add this spinach paste to the cooked vegetables and stir it for about 2 minutes.
  • Add vegetable stalk, or incase you dont have a stalk ready, add normal water. Bring the soup to a boil.
  • Add spices, and then mix the cornstarch in 2 spoons of water and add to the soup. This will get the soup to a thicker consistency.
  • Let it simmer for another couple of minutes and serve hot garnished with grated cheese.

Glenfiddich rewrites the whisky rulebook this World Whisky Day

Pushing the boundaries and challenging the status quo of single malt whisky since 1887, Glenfiddich celebrates World Whisky Day with the Experimental Series.  Over its 130-year history, distiller William Grant & Sons and its most famous creation, Glenfiddich single malt scotch whisky, have blazed a pioneering trail that lives on today. Overcoming adversity over the years, innovating, remaining family-owned and ever-changing, Glenfiddich has become the world’s most-awarded and No.1-selling single malt whisky.

Forging the way for new Scotch whisky avenues, Glenfiddich has been collaborating with maverick individuals from the world of whisky.  Designed with the desire to “inspire unusual and unexpected variants”, the Glenfiddich Experimental Series is the perfect means of memorializing this day. Focused on applying unparalleled and ingenious production processes, the Glenfiddich Experimental Series presents a unique single malt whisky experience.

Speaking on the significance held by the occasion of World Whisky Day, William Grant & Sons India Managing Director, James Pennefather said, “Glenfiddich has created a niche in the world of single malt Scotch whisky breaking age-old traditions and encouraging whisky aficionados to experiment. Building on the long-established tradition of innovation The Experimental Series helped Glenfiddich attain a new pinnacle of experimentation, setting it apart from all other distilleries. By forgoing the custom of a Malt Master selecting and examining malt whiskies, Glenfiddich welcomed global insights from 20 experts. On this World Whisky Day, we celebrate this time-honoured practice of taking on new challenges, savouring the finest of drams with our friends and family.”

The zeal for innovating new flavours at Glenfiddich, led Malt Master Brian Kinsman to partner with a local craft brewer of Speyside. Together they created the Glenfiddich IPA Experiment, a new single malt whisky, infused with breathtaking flavours from oak casks that have held a zesty Speyside IPA. Kinsman was also instrumental in the creation of the phenomenal Glenfiddich Project XX. A result of a collaboration between him and 20 whisky artistes from 16 countries around the world, the Glenfiddich Project XX is exceptional because it was created with a blend of 20 special single malts.

The finish is celebratory almost, with orange oils, cinnamon spice and caramel to round up all things whisky. Around 400 years ago, someone stole 8 seeds from the Arabs and planted them in Chikmagalur. Today, the whole world has an eye on the Gung Giri coffee blend.

A fig puree complements the sweetness of the malt, and the splash of ginger juice gives it a spicy zing. A twist of lime juice makes for a surprising citrus finish. A mention in the Old Testament. Believed to be the first domesticated crop ever. Extolled for its restorative powers. The fig has surely stood the test of time.

Walnut Infused Glenfiddich 15                60ml

Nutty Rob Roy– The best Kashmiri walnuts complement the nuttiness of our 15 Year Old Expression. A fine touch of palm sugar and a black pepper cordial bring the complexity alive. The result? A sweetness that lingers. The oldest tree food known to man. Rembrandt’s wonder ink. A Chinese investor’s wonder stock. No wonder the walnut was once only reserved for royalty.

The magical expression of the cocktail changes with every sip, thanks to the marigold finish. A result of the finest Chinese saplings planted 125 years ago, the Castleton Muscatel second flush, over time, has acquired a sobriquet that’s anything but Chinese. The Champagne of Teas.

Silver Tips Fullmoon Tea Liquor               60ml

Orange Nasturtium Petal Ice Cube          1 number

The Nasturtium Orange ice cube enhances the peppery finish of the 21 Year Old. Plucked only on one full-moon night every year, just for a minute short of 3 hours, they say it is a cosmic confluence that makes Silver Tips Imperial Darjeeling Tea magical.
