Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

This spinach soup is a good way to include healthy greens in your diet. Spinach is a good source of Iron (folate). Low levels of iron can cause people to develop Iron Deficiency Anemia. Brown rice has high fiber content which has the possibility of reducing heart diseases and helps to avoid abrupt spikes in sugar levels. Soybeans and soy milk are significant sources of protein, which is a much-needed nutrient for good health, particularly for the hair and skin.

  • Spinach - 1 bowl
  • Onions chopped - 1 katori

  • Black pepper powder - 1 tsp
  • Red capsicum - for garnishing
  • Salt - to taste
  • Oil  - 1/2 tsp.

DIRECTIONS:
Step 1 Heat 1 cup water in a deep non-stick pan, add spinach and cook.  Step 2 Heat oil in another non-stick pan; add garlic and onions and saute for a minute.  Step 3 Add brown rice with the water in which it was soaked and cook till brown rice is done.
