Potato and carrot soup

Posted on July 30, 2009. Filed under: Pregnancy recipes, Starter | Tags: , , |

The versatile potato often plays a supporting role in a meal, but in this recipe it’s the star in creating a creamy soup that is brightened up with the addition of grated carrots.
Try not to peel the potatoes when you cook and purée them because unpeeled potatoes are rich in folic acid.
Carbohydrates tend to be the best tolerated nutrient in early pregnancy, so this soup is a boon for those days.

Cooking Time : 15 mins.
Preparation Time : 10 mins.

Serves 2.

Ingredients
1 cup potatoes, diced (preferably with the peel on)
1/4 cup onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon mixed dried herbs (oregano, thyme etc.)
1 teaspoon butter
salt to taste
pepper to taste
For the garnish
carrot, grated
Method
1. Melt the butter in a pressure cooker, saute the onion for a while.
2. Add the potatoes and sauté for a few more minutes.
3. Then add 1½ cups of water and pressure cook for 3 whistles. Cool completely.
4. Blend in a liquidiser and add the mixed herbs, salt and pepper.
5. Reheat the soup and serve garnished with grated carrots.
