Spinach and paneer soup

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

Another simple soup that is really quick to make and provides a whole lot of nutrients. Spinach is rich in folic acid, iron and fibre and paneer in protein, calcium and energy.
I have kept the flavours simple, keeping in mind your delicate palate during the first trimester, but if you can handle mild flavours, add a little garlic (approximately 1 to 2 cloves) or about ¼ teaspoon of mixed dried herbs to “pep” up this soup.

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

Serves 4.

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups spinach (palak), chopped
1/2 cup paneer (cottage cheese), crumbled
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 teaspoon oil
salt to taste
Method
1. Heat the oil and sauté the onion for 2 to 3 minutes.
2. Add the spinach and sauté for another 4 to 5 minutes. Cool slightly.
3. Blend the onion and spinach mixture with 4 cups of water in a blender till it is a smooth purée.
4. Add the crumbled paneer and salt to the purée and bring it to a boil.
5. Serve hot.
