Vegetable cream soup

This recipe is really for the calorie watcher and also for mommies who struggles to feed vegetables to their kids. This is super easy and perfect for a winter evening.

Fruits, meat and carbs are easy at our household, its always the vegetables which is the scapegoat. Hence I am always on the look out for tasty recipes with lots of vegetables. As a result, our dinner generally has one salad/soup or vegetable dish for sure. They say catch them young and I am certainly in favour of inculcating the habit of eating vegetables to my kids at an early age.

This soup is made of carrot and bottle gourd. You may want to use pumpkin or bell pepper instead of bottle gourd. I choose the vegetables that have the least takers in our household. 🙂
