Sayur Bening Bayam | Indonesian Spinach, Carrot, and Tomato Soup

Today I am taking you all to Indonesia in our Culinary journey across the globe . As much as I wanted to make something from Iran / Iraq, I decided upon this recipe as soon as I read about it.

Now some interesting facts on Indonesia...
Coming to the cuisine...
Some of the popular dishes...
Here is the meal that I made for Indonesia...

Behind the scene :

A couple of month back, tomatoes we sold for nearly INR 100 per kilo. Having been used to buying a kilo for just INR 15, this price sounded astronomical!The day I made this, there were just 2 tomatoes left in the fridge and I used one for this and the  other to prepare the regular lunch menu.So though the is recipe says tomato soup, you can see very little of it ! I had this soup for lunch and it was not too heavy on the tummy.Lil Angel had this before dinner and seemed to like it. It was encouraging to see her eat the veggies this way....

I used:
Adapted from here
Serves- 2

Spinach- 10, washed and roughly chopped
Carrot- 1, peeled and chopped
Tomato-1, chopped
Baby corn-5 pieces, chopped
Ginger- 1"piece chopped
Shallots- 5, peeled and chopped
Garlic-2 cloves, chopped
Vegetable stock-2 cups + more if needed
Salt and pepper to taste
Coconut oil- 1 teaspoon

Heat oil in a pan and saute shallots and garlic till soft. Add the vegetable stock and bring to boil.Add the carrot, corn and ginger.Let it simmer.

Put in the tomato, salt and pepper powder. Once the vegetables are cooked add the spinach leaves and cook for a couple of minutes.Remove from heat and serve.

I also made this Indonesian Style Bean Curry that tasted awesome with steamed rice...
