Moving in finally!

Our own apartment is all dressed up and ready to receive us on the 3rd of April! I simply can't wait!
Meanwhile I have to get started packing our things, planning our new kitchen layout (just what goes where nothing else :) and keep calm while everyone tells me to keep this kitchen atleast clean.
The kids get their own room, while we will continue to co-sleep atleast battles over where Gau does his school work will be a thing of the past! Also all his junk will be in one place. Ash loves the orange picked out for one of the walls, he said "yellow" ran to the wall and hugged it ;) He called the green wall in the guest room "yellow" too but without the same joy in his voice and no hug. I love the soothing lavender of my room.
I am adapting a soup from the Dairy Hollow Soups and Bread cookbook. It is a blushing cauliflower soup made with red bell pepper cauliflower milk and cream. My version:
  1. 1 onion diced
  2. 2 carrots diced
  3. 3 shoots and baby leaves of beet roots
  4. 1 sweet potato diced
  5. 2 tomatoes diced
  6. 1 sprig curry leaves
  7. 1 broccoli chopped
  8. 1 cauliflower chopped and steamed
  9. 1/4 cup almonds peeled, roasted and coarsely chopped
  10. 2 tbspoon wine vinegar
  11. 1 cube maggi vegetable broth cube made into 6 cups of broth
  12. 1 tspoon ghee
  13. 1 tspoon olive oil
  14. 1 cup milk
  15. 1 packet fresh cream

  • Heat ghee and oil in a pressure cooker (great stock pot) and saute 1 for 2 minutes, 
  • add 2 and 3 and saute for another 2 minutes .
  • Add 4,5,6,10,11 and bring to a boil
  • Lower heat to medium low and let simmer for 10 minutes
  • Add 7 and 8, salt and pepper and continues to simmer for another 15 minutes
  • Cool slightly and puree in batches
  • Add the milk cream and pureed vegetables and warm it up.  Adjust seasonings
  • Garnish with 9  and serve warm with a side of garlic bread
