C4 Clear Soup

There is nothing comforting like Clear Warm Soup in these cold winter days. I always crave for Clear Soup after Holidays Season to detox the body from the mindless eating that happens in the 2 weeks of Christmas and New Year Holiday Season. Today I am bringing you C4 Clear Soup, This is a simple and effort less soup, that takes care of itself while looking. All you have to do is chop the vegetables for this soup. I have named this C4 Soup because here again I have used 4 Cs ( Carrot, Celery, Corn and Cilantro). And this pairs well with C4 Sandwiches that i recently made. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Carrot - 2
Celery - 2 sticks
Corn - 1/2 cup
Cilantro - 1/3 cup
Onion - 1/2 medium
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Olive Oil - 1 Tbsp
Veg Broth - 4 cups

  1. First heat the non-stick soup pot. Add Olive Oil to it. Once the oil is hot, add cumin seeds, as they start spluttering add sliced onions and sauté them for 2 min. Now add chopped Cilantro and sauté for another 3 min. 
  2. Now add chopped carrot, celery and stir them with onion and cilantro mix. ( for 3 min). Now add thawed corn to the pot and mix well with rest of the veggies. Add salt, black pepper, coriander powder and sauté for 2 min. 
  3. Add Veg Broth to the pot mix it well. Close the Lid and simmer for 20 min or until vegetables becomes soft. 
  4. After 20 min, taste and adjust the seasonings and switch off the stove. Serve the soup in Soup Bowl and top with some Croutons or serve the soup with the side of Garlic Bread or C4 Sandwiches.
  • I have used less salt in the recipe as Veg Broth already has lot of salt in it. If you don't prefer Veg Broth you can use Water and adjust the salt accordingly then.
  • I have used frozen sweet corn, you can use fresh ones as well.
  • I chop the vegetables in medium size pieces for these soups, as we boil the soup for long, vegetables get cooked properly. 
  • I haven't used any strong spices as I wanted this to be light which helps in detoxing. 
  • You can blend the entire mixture and have it like a Puree Soup as well. But today I preferred Clear Soup with Chunky vegetables in it.

Hope you have enjoyed this Light Soup to kick off the new year with Healthy Eating!
Stay Healthy until we meet here again!
