Mixed Vegetables




What do you do if you have half a carton of Trader Joe's Roasted Pepper Tomato soup http://www.traderjoes.com left in your refrigerator? Well, I like to make a wonderful gravy as a base for my Mix Veg. It is lip-smackingly good and very simple to make. Try it once and you will always wish for a carton of the soup in your fridge.

Here's how I make it.
2cups steamed mix veg (potato, peas, carrot, beans, corn etc)
2 cups Trader Joe's Roasted Pepper Tomato soup
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp ginger paste
Tempering:
2 tbsp oil, jeera, small stick cinnamon, 1 red chilli, curry leaves, hing, turmeric
1/2 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp red chilli pwd (adjust as per taste)
Heat oil, add jeera, cinnamon, red chilli, hing, curry leaves. Add ginger & garlic, saute two minutes. Add turmeric, red chilli pwd & garam masala, immediately add soup & bring to a simmer. Add steamed veg and cook till done. This tastes just as good with potatoes & peas as well. Enjoy with Naan or rice. Make a quick weekend treat for your loved ones.
