Chunky Carrot & Beets Soup

Today am running again our blogging marathon with group 3,as i told before Srivalli wanted to run this BM as three groups, eventhough i started with the first group, am very happy to run along with the two other groups with kid's friendly theme and soups as theme, so this week u guys wont be disappointed to find out many healthy,delicious and comforting bowl of wonderful soups..For the first day of my 3rd blogging marathon,am posting here my fav soup with carrots and beets which i usually prepare as a chunky soup..This soup goes of quick and easy preparation, both carrots and beets sauteed together with few potato cubes in vegetable stock and cream turns as this wonderful looking soup, usually i'll go for different herbs in my soupeither fresh or dried form and i used dry thymn leaves which turned out this soup super flavourful and delicious...I believe making soups in pressure cooker helps a lot for quick cooking and this soup gets ready in less than 15minutes.

Chunky carrot & beets soup

4nos Carrots (chopped)
3nos Beetroots (chopped)
4nos Potatoes (chopped)
1no Onion (big & chopped)
3cups Vegetable stock water
3tbsp Fresh cream
1/2tsp Dry thymn leaves
Salt
Pepper powder
Olive oil

Heat the olive oil in a pressure cooker, add the chopped onions and saute until they turns transculent, now add the chopped carrots,chopped beets,cook everything for few minutes,finally add the chopped potatoes,saute everything for few minutes,finally add the vegetable stock water,water if needed along with salt  and dry thymn leaves, close the cooker with lid and put off the weight and cook for 3hisses..

Once the steam get released, add the fresh cream, pepper powder and serve warm....In case if u dont like this much chunky soup,u can blend them very well..
