This is not my recipe. I had gone to my spanish friend Victoria Martinez´s home to learn how to decorate cookies and she had made this for lunch. I was fascinated by the simple recipe and the excellent taste. I do not like cold soups but this was something else altogether!! Really refreshing and soo delicious!! I asked her for the recipe and she smiled. It was too simple for words!!
This recipe is 100% fat free and you can have it anytime of the day..as a snack in between meals or as a part of a low calorie meal.
I did not add any oil of any sort but if you like you could serve it with a dash of olive oil, sesame oil.. a bit of soya sauce, crackers, breadsticks, some chopped cucumber or pickled onions etc…. If you are not a vegetarian then theres an option of sprinkling it with chopped ham or bacon. If you want it richer then a splash of sour cream will be lovely 🙂
INGREDIENTS for 2
250 grams of carrots
1 inch piece of ginger, or less, chopped into small pieces
1 cup of water
100 ml of yogurt, fat free ofcourse 🙂
salt to taste
Boil the carrots with the ginger with 1 cup of water in the pressure cooker for about 6 whistles. If boiling in a normal pan increase the amount of water. When cool puree the carrots and ginger in a blender ( i used my amazing magical bullet) with a little of the stock. Do not add too much or else it will get watery. If you want it a thinner consistency add more water. Add the yogurt and blend. Add salt to taste and refrigerate.
This might sound like a simple recipe but the taste is amazing!!
NITU DIDI TIP: If you are having a party you might like to serve this as a starter in small glasses 🙂
