Homemade Cream of Veg Soup | Cream of Veg Spoup

I love making soups and it always makes me realise they taste so much better than the packet ones.
Such an easy thing to cook too, hopefully this year I will post more soup recipes .
My favourite way to serve cream of veg soup is with buttered bread and spicy grilled chicken for a complete meal, yummmm !
Keep reading for the easy recipe of restaurant style cream of veg soup you guys !!
For yummy homemade cream of veg soup you need :
1 cup mixed veg (I used corn, peas,carrots and beans)
1 tbsp. whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp olive oil + 1/2 tsp butter
1/2 tsp pepper
2 crushed garlic cloves
1/2 cup milk (full cream is best for this soup)
2 cups water
1/2 tsp low sodium veg stock powder or veg cube (this brings out a great flavour)
1 tsp dried parsley
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt or more to taste
If you do not wish to use veg stock powder or veg cube go ahead and add 2 cups of veg broth instead of plain water.
Also if you wish to add cream at the end its totally up to you, I just use full cream milk instead.
In a pressure cooker add the olive oil and butter, then the wheat flour, saute for 2 min on low till it changes to a very light pale brown colour, make sure to not burn it.

Add in the crushed garlic at this stage as we do not want the garlic to change colour for this soup.

Now add in the mix veg and coat the flour and veg together, then add salt,2 cups water and the veg stock powder.
Pressure cook for 1 whistle till the veggies are soft.

This is how it looks after being pressure cooked,at this stage you can remove about 1 tbsp. of mix veg for garnish before blending the soup, but I like it smooth and creamy so I skip it.
Once you blend the whole soup, add warm milk and boil again for 2/3 min.
The soup will be thick and creamy by now,add in pepper,sugar and give it a taste to adjust seasoning to your liking. Then add you do is sprinkle dried parsley before serving.
Now your done.Happy sipping !

> If you feel the soup is too thick add more milk or water and adjust the seasoning.

Serve with crusty Italian bread, its epic !
