Pair this healthy recipe with toasted garlic bread (or any bread of your choice) and relish the enticing flavors of the duo. A super-delicious immunity-boosting soup that you can make for your loved ones in the monsoon and winter seasons, this Continental recipe will be an instant hit in your household. So, take a look at the steps below, and let’s get cooking.
Millets are many, round in shape, tiny in size, high in nutrition, capable of growing in harsh climatic conditions, satisfying, healthy for self, society, and the planet. They consume very less water, need no synthetic chemicals, and are extremely energy efficient. They are high in dietary fiber, low glycemic index, gluten-free, and help in sugar and cholesterol management. The immunity-boosting soup with millets added a lot of flavors (and nutrition) to the regular vegetable soup.
You can make this same soup with any millet you have on hand. If they are not quick-cooking, cook them before adding them to the soup.
Verdict – I LOVE millets! Now I am working on trying more creative ways of using it in my food so be prepared for lots of millet recipes coming your way.
