Green vegetables and lentils are part and parcel of a vegetarian lifestyle, it might be from any cuisine. Broccoli has become part of my daily cooking ingredients, especially since the past 5-6 years.

This Green Soup, is a self- made- up recipe by me. Which I first made with eyeball measurements of this and that, but at the third attempt I came up with the perfect ingredients and measurements. About which is what I am sharing today. Whether on the stove top or on the instant pot, its a quite simple recipe with a maximum of 5 mins prep work and ten mins of cook time. On the whole I was able to satisfy my family’s hunger in under 20 mins. Isn’t that jet fast for a weekday nights supper?!

My kids were against broccoli in any shape, size or form. But now, both my daughters no longer trouble me regarding broccoli in any dish, knowingly or unknowingly. Whereas, my little son has always been against broccoli then and even now. But after finishing this green soup ( I named so, just for his sake..) bowl, he said, “Amma , I love this green soup! Will you make this again?”

Such words from my children are music to my ears… haha!  And so, I gave a pat on my back for my own recipe with broccoli 🙂
